Hanging panels and parts


New member
Always hang your parts and panels as they would sit on the vehicle. The reason for this is so the finish will lay out the same on all the peices,same textures,metallic lay out,ect. This also makes for less wet sanding for buffing.This goes for bike stuff too!

Nice tip! Even if you plan on removing the part for buffing, you can at least temporarily hang them just for the reasons you mention.
I painted my truck apart in a lighter lime green, but I really rolled the dice on this. I made sure the fenders, and doors were very close to each other when painting. Solid colors you can get away with this, but metallics/pearls are risky.
