It goes on pretty thin, but I will be checking gap before firing. My feeler guages are in one of my tool chests.
The screws are no problem as long as they are abrasive blasted prior to painting.
The only function issue was that the yoke was too tight, so I stripped some off and worked it in.
All in all it is very easy to do. I've done tons of rifles, pistols and shotguns, but this was my first revolver. I'm already on the prowl for another hacked up S&W.
As a side note to this one, when I was spraying the frame it slipped off the hook I was using and bounced all over the concrete floor in my garage. Came up covered in dirt, hair, bugs, dust, debris and all sorts of crap. Wiped the affected areas with acetone and a rag and re-sprayed them. You cannot tell it was done in two stages. Gun Kote is very easy to use, and do well.
