As above - does anyone have any experience doing this? Tips and tricks? Tutorial? Ideally even a YouTube video?

I want to get it powder coated but worried that I start trying to take it apart I won't be able to put it back together. There is also the very high probability that I will fail in my attempts to take it apart in the first place! :*

Or anyone in Bristol able to help me?

My fall back plan at the moment is to ask MAD Workshop if they'll do it for a small sum..

Thoughts, advice, warnings all welcome!

Cheers.

tips
1. take few pictures of it - easy to remember how to put it back together
2. since its colder, plastic is more brittle (also its old and weathered) warm up all plastic that needs bending (eyelets etc)
3. drilling out top rivets, do it in small bursts -let it cool in between, low speed. rivets are aluminium, transfer heat indredibly fast and melt into the bracket if not careful.

other than that, its easy enough.
