This is my first attempt at doing things this way, and as the title states, is it better to paint or add BMF trim before or after polishing the body? I will polish the body first with Meguiare's Scratch-X, then Novus or MicroMesh.

I paint, clear, sand, and polish (Novus #2) the body before BMF. After BMF is complete, I give the body a coat of The Treatment Model Car Wax.

I've used Scratch X before foil quite a bit. Not only is it workable,the foil sticks much better to a polished surface.
