My 1st restoration - what should I do next?

531 3
Well I'm almost done putting a whole Magna 4-leaf mid-eye 1" front sway bar suspension kit into my 67 Fastback. The car runs pretty well (I have another engine in the works though) as is so I'm going to leave the hood closed and worry about the rest of the car.

Here's the deal. I need a whole new interior kit but I also need some paint work. Not a ton but some spots need sanding, a dent or two pulled, front of doors need rust fix, and some paint here and there.

I'm wondering if I should do the body before the interior or the other way around. Since I'll be putting in all new weatherstrip after the paint, I'd hate to subject a new interior to the leaky weatherstrip I have now. Then again, the car will be garaged, not driven in the rain for at least 4 months, etc.

What should my next step be?
