It's really not that bad if you're just replacing seals. I have a hard time leaving rust or corrosion on anything so i take the extra time and effort to clean them up as best i can. That adds a lot of time and work, stripping, cleaning, coating, etc. The rears are the worst since the tubes are next to each other and you can't get between them easily. I was able to get the main body off but the reservoir was super tight and trying to spin the end cap is difficult. But at least i can get one of them off so i can refinish the entire tube easily, just can't powder coat since i don't want to bake any O-rings.
The cleaning and painting was the only part i know i could do fine. Lol. Now finding a nito fill is another thing.
How about the schrader valves for the nitro fill. Were those fairly easy to do?
