Painting my truck.

I have painted many cars and trucks over the years. I'm getting ready to paint my truck and I want to paint it in piece. The bed is off so I want to spray it. Then the cab without the doors. Then paint the doors and hood last.
I've been told not to because the color will not match.
But I think if I put two to three coats on each panel and keep them even it should turn out fine. I'm painting it PPG Curious yellow.
It's a solid color so I think it would be OK.
Just checking to see what you guys think.

Mix all your paint and reducer in one container all at one time. As you are painting draw material from that one container, keeping it agitated. I know it will make for a long day, but try and paint everything at once. Most solid non metallic colors do not have a matching problem while painting in pieces. I am not familiar with that particular shade of yellow, but yellow could be the exception. try and keep everything consistent, air pressure, spray pattern, number of passes, and be patient.

Thats the problem I don't have the space to spread the parts all out and paint them all at once. I would like to paint the bed first. Then the cab. Then the doors and hood.
This is the color I'm using.
