Always paint first, that way you can paint the door jambs without worrying about masking off finished interior.

Vince is right.... Besides the overspray, dust is really hard to get out after doing body work and paint.

I think the company RodDoors runs an ad in multiple magazines that says interior before paint. Not to bash this company, but thats the stupidest thing ive heard of. They say to completely build your interior, then remove the entire interior before it gets painted, then re-install it after paint. Talk about too much work...

There are drawbacks of doing the interior first and doing the paint first, but with a few minor precautionary measures upholstering a car after its painted isnt that hard, and would save alot of time. Some blankets on the running boards, tape in the door jambs, and just being careful around the car will prevent any mishaps.

Definitely strep out the interior. Paint, then do the interior.

(Adding my opinion but agreeing with above)- All the cars I've done successfully I've done interior LAST... just easier and less mess. I redid a guy's car once and TRIED to keep the interior nice- removed all I could and masked the rest- still a BIG pain and not worth the extra effort on a complete rebuild. Save time and frustration- do the interior last!!! IMHO!

Yeah, good point on the masking.

Id like to know how much extra it would cost to do an interior before the paint. Go to a paint shop and get an estimate for a paint job (door jambs and all), then tell them they're going to have to mask off a brand new interior. Or when the interior is done, tell the upholsterer that you want them to remove the entire interior, and youll be bringing it back in a month or so for them to reinstall it.

Masking an interior is like masking trim. You get a better quality job if you remove it. You can always tell it was masked.
Over spray goes every where.
