My Garage
I would pull the drive train and strip to a rolling shell. Then media blast the entire body. Follow with the body and paint. While that is being done check out the engine and over haul if necessary. When the paint is done install the lines and electrical, then the engine, then fenders and front trim. Interior is what I finish last. If you have time while waiting on another phase you can cover the seats or clean and detail other parts so they are ready to go.
I have never been sorry for doing a job right even though it costs more up front. It s very discouraging to have to go back and fix some thing that should have been done.
Good luck with your build.
