i started to bend out the brakes just barely on one of the pairs than decided fuck it
Taking them apart and assembly really isn't bad at all. Just follow the TGR directions. It was really easy for me. But for bending, you deffinetly need a table vise, and try to get a pole with the smallest diameter you can that still fits on the break. That was you will get a cleaner/easier bend. Taht's basically it. It deffinetly isn't too hard at all.
