    well i did as much as i could on the other side today but now im waiting for my 54mm socket. The other side went way way faster so im happy about that. This job really isnt hard at all its all just cleaning. I cleaned up while i was under there. Ill prob do a small write up just cuz.

    I've done both my 60 and my 80, and no question cleaning is the hardest part by far.

    My rig has never looked that clean underneath.
    It does look like you repainted. Nice
    When I my first birf job it took about 10 to do both side but I did not take the birf apart. I just cleaned it thoroughly.
    Nice work.
