I'm looking for info about how the silver (or black) is supposed to be painted.

On this page, there are infos about masks around the doors, but nothing about the doors themselves.

The exterior skin is obvious, it needs be masked either just bellow the fold or just below the mushrooms holding the plastics thingies holding the trim when you have this option.

But I find nothing about how the silver is being masked on the doors itself for the lower, front and rear side. Is it also covering underneath and on the inner door skin following the exterior line (as if you'd dip the door in silver bath)? Or does it stops at the rubber channel? How is the silver/black on front and back where the door tag is?

I'll prolly mix what feels alright and what was done (and not done for economical/assembly reasons), but wonder how it was done...
So if your car has the lower body in black or silver, would you mind do some gym and show me the underneath of the door please?

The lower door was masked, the black was sprayed, and black tape was used on the outside for the finished edge. This is a 1972 car the 1971 is somewhat different at the rear of the rocker panel, see the 429Mustang mega site for details. Chuck
I can't upload pictures for some reason, sorry. The bottom of the door is body color. the black wraps around the bottom of the door skin about one inch. PM me to exchange emails and I'll send pictures that way if possible.

@c9zx black tape?? What kind of cheapo work would that be?? :O
No details found on the 429megasite, all I see described is around the door, not the door itself aside the obvious external lower part.

PM coming your way! I wanna see that tape! :O

Regarding the upload issue, I have reported twice the issue. On mac, with Firefox or Safari uploading an image also fails. That's linked to the way the complete listener is set in the javascript behind.
Using Chrome allows me to upload just as before the forum was updated. If you're on windows, try use Chrome if you did not.
