I imagine I can just tape off around the channels, lay down the bc/cc, then after the glass drops in, tape off the glass and rubber and scuff as deep as I can. would I have any lifting issues once I spray the car? I would not be concerned with lines since I would caulk and then cover with the window frame pieces.

I have been searching and have not been able to find any pictures or methods that cover this detail.
I have “hobby” painted many early Mustangs; I would not jamb the window frame at all. Install your headliner, then the windshield and back glass. Just mask the glass and rubber and scuff around the edges prior to painting. You will not have any lifting issues. Install the trim moldings after you paint.
