Suggestions on painting an interior tub?
Posted 05 July 2012 - 12:55 PM
At first I sprayed the outside the flat black and then I handbrushed the interior Gloss white, as that was the color I thought I wanted for the interior.
I've come to realize that i have to air brush it as it got way too messy painting it with a brush. I just stripped the whole tub and am ready to paint again.
So my question is how would you handle painting this? I know it might sound like a dumb question, but i'm guessing I mask the interior side as best i can, spray the exterior with the flat black, then visa versa with the interior color I choose.

It might be easier to paint the whole thing flat black then mask off the outside and paint the inside. If your coats are thin enough,you shouldn't lose any detail. That's how I would do it, but there may be other ways.
Depending on what's visible on the outside of said tub i'd do it that way too, yeah.

Thx Blaze - i'm just getting painting a shell down, now I want to play around more with interiors. Instead of spraying the whole thing on the inside one interior color, what if I want the console one color, the florr another and the back seats, which are connected to the tub another color. Then i have to use the brush right??
It depends how good you are at masking I guess. I do mostly brush painting on my interiors because it gives a little texture and is much easier. Especially since I use rattle cans and don't have an airbrush.

I just spray the inside of the tub my chosen main color (usually a flat lacquer), brush paint secondary colors, then just brush paint the portion of the tub that will be visible underneath with flat black, usually the driveshaft tunnel and the area around the firewall.
