Not hard to paint. Just sanded it down with 320 grit and primed it because it was Red. The sanded the primer lightly then painted with auto paint. I wet sanded between coats with 1000. After final coat dried, I put two coats of clear. I will probably put another coat of clear before I install it.

Yep. Read the manual wrong. Late nights and working tired caused to to misread the manual. Thankfully, it looks like the mistake will only cost me a new set of bearings, crush sleeve, and fluid. Luckily, I hadn't gotten rid of the rebuild kit, so had some of the other stuff I needed like the bearing cups and spacers.

Took beast to the dog park to play with his buddy.

Good thing his fur is waterproof so the mud doesn't stick much!
