Hi guys,

Thanks.

I've heard of guys doing it in 3 hours. But depends on a lot of things.
But depending on how many swear words / beers are needed and stumbling blocks like stripped nuts, missing gaskets. I'd say a full day.

Thanks, I would recon 5 hours doing it myself, If i had a lift otherwise the struggle is going to be real.

3 hours is insane!!
