interior painting question

Recommended Posts

When do you  paint the interior roof color? I would think it would be best to do it before spending a lot of time on the exterior finish?

I do it after painting the body and after foiling the window trim, drip rails, etc.

I have done it different ways.

 

On my current '64 Pontiac project, I painted it with white primer before any paint went on the body.

I then masked it and did all of the body painting.

 

A little more work, but I like the results better than brush painting, and I really don't want to risk any over spray onto the finished body after paint.

That's how I do it too. Prime body, inside and out, spray the headliner and when dry, wet sand body, mask off headliner, and paint the body.

This really makes more sense considering how much work goes into finishing the exterior and how much easier and smaller the area that needs masking is on the interior.

 I have to agree. I do it the same and for the same reasons. Liner first then exterior.
