As for the detail paint not sticking, you should roughen up the surface of where you are going to paint with a fine-grit sandpaper. This will allow better adhesion of the paint, because some spraypaints' consistency will not let paint stay on it.

Once it's hot enough I shut them off and begin painting.
I do keep the garage door closed while I am painting with a painting mask over my face.
I open up the garage door in between coats.
It's a long process but that's how I did it before.
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

What I did was pull the cars out of the garage, then set up a nice space heater, open the garage door and spray in there, making sure it wasn't a very windy day. Heater keeps you and everything else warm, and the garage door obviously allows for your ventilation...
I'm from Ohio, but the winters get pretty shitty here too.

It cuts down on the time you spend waiting inbetween coats so you can get your ass inside faster.
Not something that hard to grasp, i realize.

Ive never checked the temp but im assuming 85degrees or so... paint outside and take your painted item inside quickly.... I have a small stand o top of my TV... CRT TVs and computer monitors put out great heat to cure paint... its gonna stink but not as long if it cures faster.

I have a question related to this too. Where I live it is consistently in the teens all winter (or lower), and I don't have a garage in my house, and my basement has a furnace in it. How should I paint safely/without the paint freezing?
Hey Nerfers I was wondering how to spray paint in the winter because I live in Michigan and it gets pretty cold in the winter (about in the teens) and my step dad said that the paint may freeze and I can't do it down stairs because there would be no ventilation and the fumes would stay down there a while.The reason I'm asking is that I'll be getting a lot of guns for Christmas and some of my detail paint doesn't stick very well to some colors. Just tell me what you do.

Thanks a lot. Now I can sprat paint my guns I will get for christmas
Actually, if the paint and the parts are at a decent room temperature, the cold air shouldn't be a bad thing at all, because cold air has less moisture in it. Of course paint will cure much more slowly, or if it gets too cold not at all.
But if you carry everything outside, spray, and then carry everything back inside before any of the stuff (especially paint cans) gets very cold, then it should do fine. Apart from the movement possibly causing some dust to stick to the paint.

So I live in Canada, where it can get as cold as -15F I live in an apartment complex that has no garage and my only workstation is a balcony. I also have a roommate who is highly sensitive to the smell. (Gives them a wicked headache) Any suggestions or should I just suffer until spring?

Suffer till spring, basically.
