If you want a standout paint job make sure you do all blocking before paint with the body panels hung and properly adjusted. Make sure you block over panel seams. Use as long a block as possible. Once you are happy with the blocking, remove the panels and cut-in around them, jambs, etc. I would them rehang the panels and paint the car as a unit. Maybe not so important with a solid color, but almost a must with metallics.
