Note about fork seal driver. I found a $0.49 ABS 1.5" pipe coupling at TSC, chamfered one end and sectioned a 1/4 of it away so it shaped like a "C". It snapped over the tube and fit nice, a soft hammer helped to tap the coupling to seat the washer / metal, and the seal was then seated with hand pressure only using the same tool.
For anyone contemplating this, it was the first time I've done an inverted fork and I'd say it went pretty smooth following the manual. A proper seal driver here is $99 + tax. Or you can cheap out like I did and spend 2 bits.
