Paint firewall without painting cab? I could tape it off with no problems hiding tape line.
Or wait until I shoot the cab and firewall all together?
I have been a little worried about the clear coat edge peeling.
Personally i would do it while you have the engine out. I would not have been able to spray the firewall on my 67 as the rear of the engine is too close to the firewall. I dont know how much room you have, but i just taped my engine bay separating the top cowl. I had a drip rail separating the engine bay from the cowl. You may not have this .?? If you dont have a point of separation then you will just blend the two making sure to prep the overlap when you spray out the top.
