Either way you want to do it is fine. I think that it looks cleaner if you glue the lip in after you you paint it. On the flip side, you might get a better seal if you put all your components together then paint and seal it. It's just a matter of preference. Cosmetic or function. If you glue the lip in last, just just make sure there is a good seal.

As far as the bills go, I like to put my bills in right after I have sealed and primed the bait. If the body is wider than the end of the bill, I put a very small amount of wood putty in the gap left on the bait and then sand it down smooth with the rest of the bait.

After that, if need be, I apply another coat of sealer/primer and it's off to paint!
