Default Painting the motor

Quick question, folks... for the build I'm working towards, I want to paint the engine. I have the right paint (rattlecan of engine paint), but what I'm wondering is.....

Should I lap the head and jug first, or after It's painted?

Of course I'll have to mask everything off to keep the paint on the outside only first, and figure out my set-up for the project (already got it in mind), but after doing a search I haven't found an answer (yet). So, any thoughts?


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
