Advice on painting the jams

Post by n0m4d on March 16th 2012, 4:53 pm

I'm just wrapping up bodywork and I am starting to think of where to get started when its time to paint. I had a few questions and was looking for a little wisdom.

First thing, I'm wondering is painting the inside doors and jams: do this before or after I paint the car (I'm leaning towards before).

Second thing, What method is best for painting the inside doors and jams:. The options I see is: 1- Use a chisel tip foam brush, 2- Rattlecan or 3- Use a HF detail gun.

Thanks in advance for the info.

I say harbor freight detail gun or rattlecan if you can find the color you have in a rattlecan, my method would be the detail gun.

Thanks! I picked up a can of Rustoleum Navy Blue last night and I'm going to test that out against the Brightside Flag Blue. If it's close I'm going to go that route, if not I'll pick up a detail gun. I have a 80gal compressor so the detail gun shouldn't be an issue. Any recommendations on how I should thin Brightside to spray in a detail gun?

4:1:1 paint thinner hardner, that is if you use a hardner if not just mix 4:1 paint to thinner, these are the mix ratio's for most enamel paint's.
