I did this in about 15 steps checking and rechecking stands to make sure I was safe the whole time. Other than that, it was fairly easy, but I've also taken the rear apart a dozen times before in peices. It's much easier to tear it all down if you pull it out in one piece IMO.
You do make it look simple.

Famous last words for me lol

Painted the BSA's up like Volk TE87 Time Attacks, except with an orange bead rather than red. High temped, of course, done a few other sets and havent had an issue that minor touch ups during a season wont fix. Besides, they are track wheels done have to look perfect.

You going to be getting rid of any of those wheels at some point? Nice paint job, I like the orange.
