actually, I think blocking it on the car is easier cause it stays still. you can always put your fenders on with just two bolts and take it off when you need to block the edges, and you can also mess with the height of the fender so your block doesn't touch the door or messes with your sanding stroke. for the edge of the door to quarter you can just open the door, but if you like it on a stand more power to you. Just be mindful of high spots that can be created on the top of your fender from the stand. With that said, I have noticed my work turns out better for the first round of primer when I focus on single panels doing them one at a time, and that's cause it's easier to be more thorough. It's most likely cause when you do filler work on a car you tend to fill a lot of stuff each time you mix and you tend to miss tiny stuff once in a while doing it that way. Just my two cents.
