no im not talking about interior panels wondering about the actual chassis interior. searched for a few days and found nothing sorry if this was covered before. wondering how you guys normally go about tackling this job. im thinking start at roof and working my way down. i guess what im wondering is just how you guys prefer to do it, your opinions, etc. any help is welcome. chassis is fully stripped and caged no windows or anything
just trying to learn more about paint beforehand and hopefully not mess shit up haha :Ownedd:

I start with rear, work my way forward, then do the cealing, wait till it dries so you dont get your hair painted, then do the sides and do the floor last, make sure you are wiping all areas before you spray as you go, specially the floor, all the paint dust will ruin the surface you are about to paint...

from a gun would be alot more work. I would do it in the same fasion as previously posted. I am going to assume you have your interior all out and are painting the interior to match the exterior??

Spray paint is the cheapest way to do it, especailly if its not going to match the color of the exterior.
