Breaking down the calipers is actually very easy. By the time I got to the third wheel, I could have the entire assembly removed from the car and completely broken down in 10-15 minutes. Rebuilding was as simple as doing everything in reverse. Just be prepared to get dirty.

As for the tape I used, home depot/lowes sells metal based tape for HVAC ducts. It's basically aluminum foil with adhesive on one side. It's pretty cheap and worked great.
