hi there, is it best to put on a front coupe bumper on the car and get it primed/painted while its attached to the car? or can i just get it painted as is and put it ON(installed) after the paint is dry... i'd rather have it put on after its been painted... so i can still drive my car and pick up the finished bumper when i want to...

i have to get this 98-00 style v6 accord coupe bumper(sitting in my basement) but my car is a 2001 coupe, its aftermarket so i think its smaller then oem

will that style look weird? 98-00 style is smaller then the 01 style?
any suggestions advice would be great :)

If you're putting on a aftermarket fiberglas front bumper on, I would highly suggest fitting the bumper on the car before getting it painted. Most of the times, these bumpers don't fit correctly and end up needing some sort of modification in order for it to fit properly.

Since this is an "OEM style" bumper (from the context of your post), you may want to just test-fit the bumper and take it off for painting. The 98-00 bumper will fit on a 01-02 Accord perfectly, but since it's an "OEM style" you just want to make sure it fits.
