Tear down for paint

Curious how far you should tear down a truck if you are going to re-spray it the original color.

Obviously removing all items not to be painted, and the more individual pieces you can spray the better, but what is the minimum to get a nice result.

This is only for exterior, not re-spraying the interior.

I would take off the hood and front fenders, but that would be it on an 80s two tone truck like yours.

Would you tape over the stripes on an 80's truck?

Was actually thinking about the black 90 ST when I was writing that.

Depends on how good you want it to turn out, if you want it to turn out real nice the little detail work is what will make the diffrence. I would remove all of the hardware for example the door handles on push button doors, alpine windows, rear windows in the hard top, any badges, plastic trim, Mirrors and lights.

If you do not it is hard to ge the paint to adhear properly and the paint can start to chip / flake from the area due to lack of proper prep.

It is a little extra work but well worth it if you ask me

Todo the standard of finish that i would want, the doors need to come off and ideally the roof sides, windshield and roof should come off too. The job will end IPAP looking like a Nene Overland paint job where the plastic buffers under the door hinges, the hinge bolts, and the rubber between all the body panels is painted - and then of course the surface underneath didn't get painted.

Evilfij will call me too anal, but the result looks so right when the panels are painted apart and so wrong when everything is painted in situ.

That being said, have you contacted a GOOD detailer? Some guys can work miracles with paint including chip repair etc. To me, a 5-700 dollar detail on original paint is money better spent than thousands on a paint job.

As a point of reference, when I painted my NAS 110, it was completely disassembled, it got painted inside and out, and the bill was around 6k. Your mileage will of course vary.
