<VV> Paint Verses Upholstery

You got me to thinking about our '61 Rampside, which will need a complete exterior paint job after rust repairs to the body work are done. The cab's interior is decent, so that will have to be masked off before the spray job. 
If you think about that, and how cars and trucks are built in the first place (the body's assembled, then prepped and painted before anything goes in it), then the path seems obvious -- paint it, then do the upholstery.

Are there any significant factors to consider when deciding which to have 
done first, a repaint without any major body work or reupholstering?  Off 
hand, I'm assuming that the paint first would usually be the best choice to 
prevent any over spray from blemishing the upholstery.
Is there anything I'm missing?
