No mate....reallllly quick.

A tip, run a bead of clear silicon (on the rubber only), then slide them in behind the rim, takes 10mins max after the first one.

I used a cloth polishing wheel with scratch remover cream as an agent, mounted on a shaft/electric drill to clean the insides after a good wash/scrub down. quick top coat/laq, done, , 3 hours for 2 wheels
Its most likely be the fronts that need anything more than a really good clean.....so a Saturday afternoon
