Blocking car assembled vs. panel by panel

I'm just about to the point where I'll need to start blocking my Mustang. I've got it completely torn down and have all the panels and body in epoxy primer. For this step I did it panel by panel. However, I now have all these panels and not enough room. I will have to do some test fits with new valance panels anyways so I'll have to assemble the car before I tear it down again for edging.

It sure is easier to block everything when I can just lay it out on a stand and work on it, but I almost risk damaging the panels more by constantly having to move them around.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of blocking the car as an entire assembled unit? All seams will be sealed by this point.

Thanks in advance, you guys are always so helpful.
