Suburban interior/jam question

trying to figure out an order to do this. i sprayed my interior about 5 years ago, gloss black with gloss red dash. well, it needs touching up, as does the painted firewall. exterior will be done by a friend, paint and body...hot rod flat black.

what i am trying to do, is have the interior fully painted before taking it to him, with all glass installed. my question is, what about the jambs and inside of the doors? im already thinking i need to repaint the gloss black to match the exterior flat black that needs repaint anyways, but some of this stuff ties together. once i bolt everything back on i do not want it taken back off for paint and body...just like a modern truck somebody would be painting today. any opinions how to go about it?

this is a 67 suburban, little tougher imo than a truck.

Mask everything off and spray it with the doors open...work your way out each door

Yes.

Ideally no, but you mentioned not wanting to blow it back apart for paint

Re: Suburban interior/jam question

well, the doors arent a big deal to remove now, but once it leaves my house i dont want him taking anything off. just tape up the windows and areas paint wont over spray and he can do the body work and paint like that. reason being is because i want to do as much work here as possible to keep his costs down. if all he has to do is literally paint and bodywork and no panel adjustment or gapping, it will be a lot cheaper. one of my main concerns is how to do the rockers or where to tape off and let him do the rest of it. from the floor channel all the way to the pinch weld is one solid piece. im guessing i will have to draw the line somewhere.....

Re: Suburban interior/jam question

When I did my C30, I pulled the doors and painted the jams and inside doors..then hung them back on..
Then I used 3M softedge in the door jams and painted the truck..
Worked great,,,the softedge allowed the paint to blend together without leaving a paint edge
The jams would e difficult to get everything painted with hinges in the way..not to mention the confined space around them..

this sounds like the way to go. i really dont want to respray my firewall (currently one stage gloss black) but its probably smarter to shoot it flat black to flow with everything else
