Should the entire interior of the door be painted the interior color, including the door jambs? Just wondering what if any section of the door should be painted the exterior color and what section the interior. Just not quite sure.

Thanks.

As per the above pic I used the weather strip location as the divider between interior and exterior colors.

The weatherstripping is close to the transition from body color to interior color, but not quite. Here's a picture of an original door:

It's interesting that the factory would elect to have maybe an inch or so of exterior shown on the bottom, inside the door beyond the weatherstripping. Then again, you know those Floridian cars :lol:
