I am about to paint my mustang. Do I paint it with the quarter panel emblems in or out of the car? I don't want to ruin a new paint job jockeying the glass and track plate when I'm done. Is there a better way to do this?
As said best results is car is apart. What shop explained to me, the rear fender extensions & front headlight housings, if you paint car with them on paint goes across seams instead of around the edges. IF you ever have to removed a bolt on part, you'll risk cracking or lifting paint at seams. You'll get better paint coverage if each part painted off car.
On a 67, the rear quarter window assembly and tracks must come out to remove the qtr emblems. Just be really careful with the glass assembly during assembly to avoid chipping paint, that's the piece that will give you the most trouble.
