Full door painting

Hey guys so I just bought a pair of full steel doors. So my question is do I need to remove the interior door panels before taking them to a shop and having them painted ?

I took mine off before I got them painted. Makes it easier and better finished product especially if the doors are going to painted a different color.

you can, it will save you some $$$$$ but be careful not to break any of the clips. personally id let the shop do it, they have all the correct tools it wont add much to the bill

Personally, I'd strip it to a bare shell. Door panel, window regulator, weatherstrip, latch, door handle...Everything. The less the body shop has to do, the cheaper it should be, and the less they can screw up.
