Done with the 2K primer. Paint ?

I'm using SPI products. I did spray epoxy then filler work and sprayed the 2K Turbo primer. I'm waiting to block the car because I will do it close to top coating.
My question is should I paint the jams, around the edges of the hood and alike before the paint? If I do How can I prevent from over spray or tape lines?
What do you guys do?

I am thinking you are going to get a "dont do it from most people". I asked a question which led into painting jambs, etc first and got a lot of good info on why not to do it.

Here is the thread.

Painting in pieces. Can I do it?

One way you can minimize tape lines is if you can backtape the edge, lay your tape down and then pull it back so sticky side is up, it doesn't leave a hard edge, hard to explain. Then when you are finished clearing, if you can open up the doors, ect and carefully peel back the tape and shoot a little reducer or blending solvent on the edge. Even if you don't do this, the edge won't be as harsh though. I think it is 3m that makes a special foam tape for taping these areas also, its looks like a rounded peice of foam, don't know the exact name offhand. Or look for an edge you can tape on. Less things to worry about when you don't have to paint the whole car as well as underhood, jambs and trunk at once. In my garage I wouldn't even have the room to do this, it would be very cramped in there. Unless you are doing a showcar and are that concerned about those areas being perfect, I would paint the jambs and stuff first, and tape up good in there so you don't get a bunch of overspray on them.
