    If you have to take the car apart and put it back together the work is the same.

    Mark, you should visit Wade's shop. He's got my QV there now, all the way from Memphis. Remember it from EuroFest in Ridgeland?

    Looking good buddy. You really are Mr. 308. Ready to expand...again?

    They come apart easier than they go back together.

    I would argue the other way round, putting them back together is definatley more time consuming as you are aiming on bettering fit and finish. Cutting through all the sealer, drilling out all the rivets is pretty awkward work.
