after sanding back areas to put a skim of bog you would just spray primer and not worry about etch over the bog?

i was wondering what you do with the doors when it comes time to paint the entire car in color?

if you prepare the doors by undercoating the out side and coloring the inside and then you hang them then how do you paint the inside of the door frame?

do you have to open and close the doors during painting?

could someone please out line the process?

the easy process is this:

1- prime+prepare all panels ready for the final top coat, you should can leave the very last wet sand and do it a bit later.

2- paint inside doors / bonnet / around guard edges / fuel filler etc on the body...

3- paint the inner door parts off the body

4- hang the doors, line them up, then paint the bolts used and touch up any scratches etc..

5 - you may want to do a final sand of the car here now that the doors are hung.

6- paint the whole outer car at once with doors etc on

-and NEVER open/close the doors during painting...

-and etch is not useful on bog, so just primer/filler on top is the go....
