BC/CC 2 tone how to paint door jambs?

Im painting my 67 El Camino a two tone color (silver on bottom, galaxie grey on top) I decided to take off the doors to carefully paint the inside door jams and also follow the 2 tone dividing line through the door jams but Im trying to figure out if I should do the base coat and clear on the jam before putting the door back on and paint the outside? I was thinking to just do the base and clear the entire car including the jambs after but then I might drip on the clear on the hard to get to spots and I will also pass my recoat window if I wait to get the doors on and alligned. What my question is how far should I go out to the exterior of the car in doing so since I plan on doing the outside separately? I also want to wait to do the two tone outside after the door is on and aligned so the line will be straight through the body, jambs, door, and fender..
Any opinions as to how to tackle this? Am I on the right track? what Im afraid is that if I tape the door jams when I shot the outside I will get a separation line between the two but if I dont tape and just shoot the outside with the door slighly closed I will get overspray on the inside.. Wow.. this two tone idea is really kicking my A_ _ ... here is what Im going for;

to get your best job i would say shoot the outside with your two tone ,clear it let it dry.then after a couple days tape around the outside of doors and shoot the jams.that will give you your best job,but thats only my opinion,god luck .
