Here we go.....

I have 32 cabinet doors (off the hinges) and 8 drawer fronts to paint

Prep:
TSP
sanded
oil primer (rolled and brushed)
sanded
oil primer
sanded

Yes it took days but the doors are smooth, beautiful and ready to paint

Bought a Graco LTS17 to spray KM dura poxy (100% Acrylic eggshell)

I am ready to paint in my kitchen (the entire kitchen is masked)

FINALLY the question ----

Anyone have a suggestion on how to spray several doors at once? I thought of setting up and easel type configuration to hold several doors at once.

Thanks freddy

I've seen on the Hgtv show they lay them out on a sheet or something and use a spray gun. And I would assume let them dry and do another coat and wait till they dry and do the reverse side of them.

I set up a couple sets of saw horse and put 3 or four extension ladders stretched out and spray them on the ladders, but I doubt you have a slew of extension ladders so if I were you I would set up a couple sets of saw horses and brace some 2x4's together with some metal brace connectors to make sure they are solid and then spray your doors on them. I would also be doing them in an isolated area such as your garage or basement, be sure to cover up your make shift spray room floor thoroughly.

Here is a pic of the example I was trying to explain, note that under each door on the ladder I have each door numbered so I can always keep track of it, I also made a door order diagram on paper so that I always knew the number of the door order, this is most important for a spray job.
You can create the same effect with braced together 2x4's on some saw horses.

This particular job was not sprayed that is why not everything in the room was covered.

I slipped in a finished door pic just for the fun of it.

Freddy, not on that job, I used the diy Rustoleum cabinet Transformation kits. It was out of my normal way of doing things but the results were good. Everything was done with a 3" thin stock purdy brush.
