Guys, Thanks for your input. I guess my thought was (after talking to the paint shop I think I am going to have paint it) to tow it to the painter with the fenders, doors, hood, off. Let him paint it, Get the engine, and install it before I reinstall the fenders etc, while I have easy access to everything. Then finish the interior. The painter didn't seem to care if he was painting it as one whole car or with the fenders, doors etc off. I thought this might be easier for a couple of reasons, One being I can protect the subframe and rear springs, differential etc. from overspray easier if the engine and tranny are out of it. I know you need to be very carefull when re-installing the fenders and doors so you don't chip or scratch anything. Again, the other reason, would be that it will easier to re-install the engine with basically everything on the front-end off. What do you think?
