Spoke Wheel Question

I have a 12 Highball and over winter I might try to take apart the wheels and powder coat the spokes. I just don't know if it's worth it tho, have any of you guys/gals taken apart a spoked wheel before? If so was it hard to do and get it back to a true wheel?

First go to some local shop and find some one who can lace wheels.
I have seen guys spend about four hours lacing a rim its not a job for a beginner.
Talk to your power coater about getting the spokes strip and masking the treads and plugging the nipples.
