I just did exactly the same on my 28mm f2.8 AIS. Was quite straight forward, except that I made the same mistake as you with misaligning the helicoid the first time reassembling. No big deal, the second time around I got it bang on. Has taken me all of about an hour total, no prior experience (but I happen to do microsurgery for a living!). Lithium grease is definitely on the stiff side, go lightly with it or you will have a very sticky focus mechanism!
