    Well, I think it's better to install AFTER painting that way there are no mistakes.

    I agree. The visor should be put in after the painting, misting/weathering, and clear coating is finished. Although you can mask off the visor you can make sure it doesn't receive any tarnishing from overspray or other mishaps by completing the bucket then installing the visor.

    especially if you only have one visor to work with.

    I personally like to put it on first and just mask it off.Keeps any glue off the new paintjob.
