With the excellent help from my friend Pete, we got the pesky things apart.
The fork seals proved to be a bit of a pain, and ended up needing basicially a crowbar to pry them out. Finally, pop! out they came.
A fantastic thing to do when taking things apart is take photos of them so you know how to put them back together.
Threw everything into the parts washer for a cleanin’
Now, to paint the lowers and put it all back together.
Hopefully, I’ll paint them today (maybe tomorrow) and then put the forks back together in a few days. Yay!
