<VV> Paint Strategies

OK, I'll try again. I posed a question the middle of last week about my
painting strategy for my '64 Monza Vert., but the question seems to have gotten
overlooked in everyone's haste to weigh in on what is obviously a long-standing
feud between advocates of electric vs. mechanical fuel pumps.
What I'd like some input on is this: I've got my '64 vert totally stripped
down, drivetrain rebuilt and sitting on the floor, glass all removed etc. I'm
changing the overall color scheme from Tuxedo Black to Diamond White and I want
the interior of the engine bay to be the same as the exterior. My thought is to
paint the engine room first, install the drivetrain, then paint the rest of the
car. That eliminates a detailed coverup of the engine as well as the inability
to paint that whole area as well as w/o the engine in the way. But I don't want
to paint the whole car and then run the risk of a nasty gouge or scrape on a
fender etc. while putting the drivetrain back in place.
Anybody done it either way and have some sage advice? Thanks for your input.
