You have to have a great painter to paint panels off the car. The panels need to be in the correct orientation (as they would sit on the car) and even then if it is a metallic color, the metallic distribution can be way off because the painter is not painting from one panel to the next in a continuous motion the way they would with the car put together. Plus you greatly increase the chances of damaging a panel or paint if you assemble the pieces after they are painted.
