THE BIG QUESTION…

I have a question on my project.

I am thinking of putting color on the inside doors and jambs, then putting the top on, then color on the body. If you remember, I’m doing single stage paint, so the question is:

How long can I leave the finished jambs in paint before doing the body?  Could it be a problem sitting before I complete the body?

I have not done one of these tops (actually never done any soft top before and told this one is the most difficult!), so it might be some time before I go back to paint.

Sorry, this is getting long… I thought because parts of the top are very close to the jambs, it might make sense to do jambs first.

Tony, I had an opportunity to take these pictures tonight.

I hope they are what you were looking for, if not, let me know and I’ll give it another shot. Obviously the wood is where the new top is going to be.

The top goes around the B pillar, above the 1/4 panel to the rear of the door and jamb.

Also, another situation is the door covers part of the 1/4 panel when it is closed. 

There tech is not the area with space between doors and jamb/ 1/4 panel like later model cars.

I will have to paint the Quarters with the door open, close door to first latch then paint the door etc.  Just another glitch in this scenario.

Thanks for all your help and guidance!!

Pros and Cons of Single Stage Paints

Pros – Very thick and can be sprayed over a 320 grit sandpaper. If spraying a dark color I would prep up to 400 grit the apply paint. Easier and faster to paint than a 2 stage paint. You can add or mix a polyurethane 2k clear coat up to 50% on the last coat for added UV protection and gloss, but not needed.

Cons – Does not have a clearcoat layer. Considered a cheaper paint. Not as easily customizable. Color will rub off a little when buffing.

Pricing: $100 – $200 a gallon kit. Depends on where you purchase from, what brand etc.

*Best sprayed out of an LVLP-MP type spray gun using a 1.3 or 1.4 tip. I use 1.4. (Atom X Guns)

When Spraying Single Stage Paint

Things to keep in mind:

Spray pressure range “trigger pulled” from 25-27 PSI.

Nasty overspray! lol. 🤭 Maybe rent a booth, or make sure you cover your toolboxes and garage with plastic sheeting.

Your shoes may turn color!

Normally single stage can be complete with 2 medium heavy coats of paint. So that’s two rounds around the vehicle.

Paint time 50-70 minutes total. An extra 25 minutes if you plan on a 3rd coat.
