Well, on stands its quick and easy like a $20 good time or a prom date
On the ground well that just more like trying to ..... a nun.
Here are a few pics of mine it took me 4hrs but, that was because I had to do it on the ground before I got my stands. I did a buddies in 1 1/2hr on stands.

there is a tried an true method on the ground. lay on a skateboard and have someone roll the bike, on hand on the tape, the other on the fork. You move at the same pace. As long as you hold the tape steady, it works perfectly..










J/k. my bike had a center stand, really easy.
