Was trying to figure which way to go with this post...so since it deals with painting thought I'd stick it in this forum. Will be getting ready to paint chassis hopefully this month. Do I put in the engine, tranny and rear end to get everything (mounts etc.) in place before painting and take it all back out to paint or do I just paint and stick everything in after painting. Seems like a lot of work putting in everything and taking it back out but I guess logic would dictate it may be a better route to go. What route do you guys use? also I might paint the tranny and engine and rear end all the same color (different from the chassis) Is there a good long lasting paint to use for these items?
