body on or body off

Some of you guys might have looked at my journal and seen my project, well now that I've got paint on the underside, I've got to ask a question to the pros or anyone that has done this before. Should we put the body back on the frame to finish up the body and paint or should we leave the body off and finish up that way. Is one way better than the other ?

Paint it off the frame, it's much easier to get up to a height so you can make sure you get enough paint on the lower portions. Placing it back on the frame after it's painted is a piece of cake if you have enough help.
