Planning ahead-67 Mustang Hood/inner fender paint

I'm working on my brothers 67 Mustang coupe. Currently im fixing some rust spots in the engine compartment and going to start stripping all the paint to start fresh. I have a few questions on "when" to do these things..
We ordered a new hood with the built in turn signals and were also going with candy apple red for a color and should I paint the underside of the hood while its off? When the hood is open (car finished) I want the paint on the underside to match the rest of the car (not be darker or lighter) or would this not be noticeable?
Behind the front fender area where the door hinges attach to the body I would like to paint that as well before the fenders go back on.. (see pic) but want that to match too. Am I over analyzing this? Opinions? Thanks

This all depends on what you call candy apple red...If it's the candy apple red that is available in a single stage or base coat paint and not the candy apple red that's a tri coat, then there shouldn't be any trouble matching the the door jambs or the underneath of the hood if you paint either before the rest of the car. If it is a true tri coat candy color, there could be an issue, however, if you paint the pieces that you want to paint separately with the same number of coats and the same gun set up, again, there shouldn't be an issue.

I'm fairly confident that the color your talking about is not a tri coat...so if that is the case, I wouldn't worry in the least, just make sure that your substrate ground coat is the samd color in the jambs and the underneath of the car...that way the same number of coats of color will look the same on the outside of the car as the hidden pieces.

Hope this helps

Ray

It will be a base/clear- I have not yet ordered the paint so I am not familiar with the "tri-coat" you speak of. Ill research that. Thanks

Ford had a Red in those years called candy apple red...I'm confident that is what your talking about, but I wanted to cover all the bases...a candy color in the painting world is a ground or base coat color with a transparent color sprayed over top and then cleared.

Hope this explains

Yes, the original Ford color. I was not sure if it was a "candy style" (transparent) paint or just the name of Ford's red. Thanks for clarifying

That being the case, painting the underneath of the hood off the car is a good idea, the jambs can also be painted prior to the car being painted.
