It'll depend on how far in depth you want to go. Myself, I'd make sure it's mechanical sound and runs well before any body work. If that's good then your best bet (IMO) would be to disassemble the car, make sure when you to tag all the parts or it's going it going to be fun reassembling it later. Then I'd sand it down to metal, fix any rust and then spray some epoxy primer over everything and do the filling - basicly following SPI's perfect paint job.
