Looking at your video, it seems that removing the stock hats and replacing them with the GC camber plates (before re-installing the new MP springs) should be pretty straight forward. I know the aluminum brace will need to come out, but that looks pretty easy as well.

Is there any reason why the camber plates swap would not work like I described? Is there any other detail (or tip) about the camber plates swap that I am missing?
It's exactly that. Should be simple.
Keep in mind they you do not need to remove the aluminum brace altogether. Removing the bolts holding the strut bearing will be enough. Then you can flex the brace up and remove the bearings
