I'm not sure if I should put the body on and cut out all the items and then take the body off the get painted or mount the body on the frame and paint the body while on the frame.
I would mount the body first so you can adjust and fit the doors... then assemble the rest of the car. Take it for a ride and make sure itís sorted out the way you like. Then dis assemble and send it off for paint. less changes and less work after paint!
