Under normal circumstances with a single stage or non metallic I would agree, however when using any kind of pearl or three stage paint, your chances of getting things right and having the metallic or pearl match is slim at best.

Paint the jams and inside of the doors and hood. After they're dry, reassemble everything, tape up what you've already sprayed and then spray the whole car. It's the only way to ensure you get the same amount of paint, clear, and pearl on all the outside parts.
