Default 8 feet of low crown welding help

Hi all,
Iím replacing the lower half of a 1960 Cadillac qtr panel and need advice on the steps involved. First off, the lower part is made in three sections, front qtr, wheel well, and rear qtr. all panels are built with 19 gauge steel. The plan is to use a Victor J-28 with a 0 tip. Would it be best to weld and planish the three lower sections together, then fit this whole piece to the car, and tack and weld? Or do each panel independently then do my vertical welds last? Access to the back side is about 95% since the inner panels are removed.
Thanks for any ideas,
