Body paint or Floor coating first?

Im just getting to the stage where im ready for paint, but Im thinking now Id like to do a floor coating..and since the interior is out now is the best time. Maybe POR 15 then a bed liner type floor over that.
Should I paint the Bronco (body) first or do the floor? Im thinking floor because if any over spray of the paint gets on the bed liner I wont care because carpet will cover it all anyway. Any reason to do the body paint first??

Forget that POR 15,it will peel off,it did on my 48 coupe,use a 2 K primer,brushing it on the floor would be OK,maybe (at least 2 coats.)paint the floor first.

SPI epoxy primer is the way to go

I agree with boatbob. Forget the Por15 or it will bite you in the butt!

I decided on spraying SPIs Epoxy with Upol Raptor Liner over it. Epoxy is on and it turned out great, hopefully my raptor liner shows up tomorrow
