painting the backside of fenders, hoods, tail-gate, etc.

Hey guys...working on a 95 S-10. I was just wondering...I'm putting 2 new fenders on the truck...how much prep should I put into the insides of the fenders...like the part that's visible when the hood is popped? Also, should I clear these? Or leave them with no clear and looking semi-dull? Not doing a SHOW vehicle by any means...it's a 4x4. My ex wrecked it, had to put a front clip on it...2 new fenders, and I decided to order a cowl hood too...it's got a smooth inner liner, though, so I figure I'll clear the bottom of it too. And also, the tailgate.

I was thinking I'm probably just going to use a brown scuff pad dull the black primer out a lil bit...prime the front and back of each panel when I do the rest of the priming, then paint and clear all the back-sides. throw everything back together and paint the truck as a whole.

Sound like a plan?

That's a good plan. All I would add is that you should mask off the outside of the fenders when you paint the inside. This will prevent overspray from causing a problem with the exterior paint, since the basecoat won't adhere that well to the clearcoat. It saves sanding and possible problems later.
