When to spray paint.
Posted by Pinkbooger on Friday, September 29, 2017 6:18 AM

Good morning all,

I am new to the model building world and I am looking to doing 2 cars here in the very near future. My question is:

Would it be better to spray paint the body before doing the build?

Yes.

For one-piece bodies, yes.  For those kits where the body is made up of several pieces (not including hood) the pieces must be glued and the seams filled before painting.  But I still do that before putting body on frame or underpan.
