I dont see any problem here...
Bodyshops rarely paint complete vehicles.
Fenders doors or part panels are painted without the rest of the vehicle all the time.
Blending is common practice as is breaking the paint line at an edge as has been sugested already...
The color match my be the bigger problem although in this case I doubt anyone would notice the transition from firewall ( under the hood ) to outerbody colour...
Good luck

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.
