Painting Dragon MagicTracks

I'm seeking advice for painting the Dragon "Magic Track" individual track links. Personally, I prefer to paint tracks and running gear separately because it allows me to do a more thorough job. The tracks don't get in the way of painting the rubber on the bogeys and vice versa, I can paint all wheels and rollers etc separately... I'm sure you all know the benefits Does anyone have any advice as to a better way to install these tracks? It looks as though they need to be assembled in place in order for each length to be formed correctly. I imagine that building them up in lengths without getting cement on the rollers, sprockets and wheel would be near impossible. This is my first kick at these. I've worked with Fruil tracks before and love them, but those can be pinned and installed last. Are the "Magic Tracks" worth the trouble, or the standard practice to just paint the whole tank with the tracks attached? Just seeking for a better way. I'd really like to give the kit tracks a shot as; they look fine as is, and Fruil tracks aren't cheap.

I look forward to learning from all your experiences with these.
