factory paint

I am about to paint my Shadow's engine a 2pack urethane, and had a quick question. Did the factory spray the bike engine assembled or in pieces? I noticed drip marks inside the engine case indicating it was apart when spray, but my engine has had a hard life, and may have been resprayed at some point. Thanks, Dan
