A direction is needed

All right another of those questions about painting the '46 Panel.

Got the everything primed and ready for sanding, I did find a couple of flaws that need to be taken care of first, not a problem. But then comes the questions.
Do I get the interior started pretty good then paint or the opposite?? Next question, I'm going to do all the door jams and inside of doors first and remount the doors for a two tone outer paint job. Now I still need to get all the windows for the truck so, Paint first then glass or glass then paint?? Just need to have priorities in the right order ya understand LOL

Thanks again for all the info you folks have helped me with on this first time paint job

Do the interior last, you don't want to get paint on it and you don't want the extra work of masking everything up. Paint the door jams and the inside of the doors first, then paint the truck and add the windows last. Windows are the same as the interior, you don't want the extra work of masking and cleaning. You need to ge careful when installing the windows, put masking tape where the glass might come in contact with the paint.

Oh yeah, one more tip....when you primed your truck you should have acted as if it was paint. What I mean by this is use the opportunity to figure out what spray pattern, which sections your going to paint first, and what sections you are going to paint last. This helps with finding out where you need to be careful spraying so you don't create extra work (drips, etc..).

Good Luck
