Hey, does anyone know exactly how to remove the truck sideframes from a P2K SD9?? I don't want to break them but they have to come off for weathering right? Any answers and or pictures as to how they come unclipped and where the clips are would help!
If disassembling the entire loco is going to be the way, could you just paint the sideframes while they are on the trucks, or would this hurt something?
