Default Prime drywall before installing wainscoting?

I'm installing PVC wainscoting in a bathroom. Just had the drywall work completed. Should I prime the walls before gluing the wainscoting? Thanks. Bob

Prime the entire bathroom, locking it in so to speak...then install all your trim...then Paint.
