While I had one of my forks disassembled to replace the bushings, I decided to try painting the lowers a different color. I don't need (or really want) a factory fresh paint job. I just wanted to change up the color to a nice neutral black. 

DIY Fork Bushing Removal Tool

I have a spare fork that I bought awhile back and am just now getting time to overhaul it (2002'ish RockShox SID SL). I noticed it's starting to wear the stanchions at the bushings so I'd like to replace the bushings. But, this is something I've never done.

While the bushings are cheap (about $15 for the set), the actual RockShox tools to remove and replace the bushings will cost me over $100 and that doesn't include the parts I can't find (bushing install sleeves).
