<VV> Engine Compartment

I ended up doing the same to my '64 Monza Vert.  Lots of sanding & grinding; 
body panels to be replaced, too.  I'm going to have the engine compartment 
sprayed first, then put the drivetrain in and take it back to have the rest of 
the body painted.  Then do the undercoating.  Does this sound like the best way 
to go or am I overlooking something?
