I ripped off a few pics. However I was following Andrew'* writeup and it'* very thorough. Got a few other pics where he might not have gotten one. Overall though, he has it going on.
Learned a few tricks, stopped a few times for a different outlook at a problem. Best thing you can do is have a helper on hand for the original disassembly. Helper has two jobs, first is taking pictures as you disassemble to have pictures of each step and which washer was laying between parts. Second is to label baggies for you with labels of thrust washer etc from the manual. There are plenty of them that look similar...and the rebuild kits don't come labeled. Having each one of them labeled to match up the new parts would have sped this up greatly.
Next up is tools..Like many wanting to build their own transmission cost of tools was an issue. Here I am dropping $2k on parts and I lack some of the necessary tools. Having a full kit would be nice, that'* about $500. Listening to others the minimums were purchased.

The rings are a tough to stretch Teflon that won't easily compress back down once it is stretched. This tool was well worth it'* cost.
