Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:
In theory this SHOULD be pretty straightforward but I'm definitely getting overwhelmed / horrified of the prospect of turning what was a fully functional machine into a giant brick. No idea if the pictures I've taken along the way have been sufficient or if my sorting of parts will prove effective in any way. I definitely need to get to sanding soon so I can start reassembly sooner rather than later.
The worst that will happen is that you put something in the wrong spot and then have to redo a bunch of work.
I think the anticipation and fear of messing something up is much worse than the reality.
You got this!
