I think it would have taken about as long if you had taken the wheels off. Any time you paint, powdercoat, chrome or whatever, the key to a good job is surface prep.With the wheels off you can clean 'em thoroughly with degreaser or whatever solvent you prefer, and easily locate and repair any gouges or other defects. Seems a lot more thorough and easier if the wheels are off.
