Opinion on installing interior before paint
#1
So now that the car is running I want to get it drivable.  In order to do that I need to put the interior back in.  I don't want to paint the car right now and when I do I'm going to be doing a color change.  I should be able to paint without getting the interior messed up shouldn't I?  Will have to do the jams and all.

Thanks!

I would remove the interior when you paint. I'm kind of a slob, so even with a lot of taping and masking I always have someplace where paint sneaks in.

For a proper color change paint job, all windows and moldings need to be removed, along with doors and fender extensions (painted separately), grill, headlights and buckets, and minor things like radio antenna. Not that much more to remove most of the interior.

Chances are, there is going to be some rust around the windshield and rear window, now would be the time to take care of that, too.

Put it back in for now. It would take you only an hour or two to remove door panels, seats & carpet, pillar trims and the quarter trim panels. Send it to the painter with the dash masked off and a junk driver's seat.

I would put it back in and make sure it fits well. Then for sure pull it before paint.

Are you sure you want to change the color? If you don't love the car I would not change the color. Just think it would hurt the value of your rare car.
