Painting question

Dunno if any of you guys know much about painting cars but if your gonna spray a whole car, is there something you use to stop overspray from getting into the panel joins (ie, where the doors meet the body). I was just wondering cause if you get the door jams all painted up nicely, the last thing you want is overspray dulling down the finish on the door jams.
Cheers.

Re: Painting question

i was told once that the consistency of the paint means it doesnt actually cover over holes or 'drip'. Not sure if its true though.

Re: Painting question

Most panel and paint suppliers will gladly help you out with advice. Most of the guys behind the counter have sprayed cars professionally at one time or another.

Re: Painting question

Ther was stuff preciely for such a thing for this job , as above the retailers will have it such as 3m etc ,,, amazing stuff you will never go back to plain old marsking tape again. The stuff we used was like foam packing but it was u shaped for the opening or gap that you wanted filled.

Re: Painting question

Why not just mask the inside of the door (so that the adhesive side is facing out) with the tape over hanging slightly. Then close the door fairly carefully. Or better still, do the inside of the door jambs last?
Just a thought.

Re: Painting question

ED is on the right track... tape the doors from the inside...lay the tape over the edge of the door about 1/2 way then fold the 'left over' back on itself as you close the door...

SAme with the bonnet and boot... lay the tape over the edge then fold it over so the 'sticky' side is facing outwards..... Make sure you fill the key barrel holes and door handle area's too or you get paint on the windows...I know this because when i primed my doors i forgot and later when i put the window up i had a perfect shape painted onto the glass
