Paint and Interior

My 69 Chevelle needs complete interior replaced. I am also wanting to repaint, but the paint on it is okay for now. My question is If I replace/repair all the interior (includes painting floorboards and installing Hushmat) and later decide to repaint with a color change do I need to remove all the interior or can I just mask off the area? I plan on using the water/sand blasting and that question is how to do the door jams and other areas just masked off. Will it hold up under the water blasting?

Have you ever stopped to think and forgot to start again??

Re: Paint and Interior

To do it right, you should remove the entire interior, glass, dash, trim, etc.

Re: Paint and Interior

When I took my 67 convertible in for color change paint job it had been my daily driver for a while. But I took off everything I could including the complete interior. I did not remove the glass or conv. top. This saved me hours and hours of paid labor and was easily in my skill wheelhouse.
Unbeknownst to me beforehand, the body shop then pulled the doors, hood, fenders and trunk lid. They did not pull the glass or top and replaced/realigned all the sheetmetal after paint.
Paint job came out fantastic except for some reason they painted the metal portion of the door tops the outside color. Easy fix.
Much slower going back together once I got it home. New gaskets everywhere. Then the grill didnít look up to par. Then the bumpers didnít look very shiny, etc, etc. It just cascaded.

LOL the cascading part, yea, I understand. Would you mind telling me the cost of the paint job?

Not surprising at all. If you start talking show quality you can be well north of those numbers quick!

Sounds good for bodywork, paint & interior. I spent 2500 on just paint and painting supplies.
