Brief Description:  Tip Up Frame Strut 5: Inserting bolts

Turns out inserting nuts on the #8 screws that hold the aft bracket is a @$%*#%^. I discovered that since the nuts can be grabbed with a magnet that you can hold the nuts in place right thru the canopy deck aluminum using the magnet.

In the middle photo below the nut is stuck to the magnet on the other side of the aluminum. I slide the nut into position with the magnet and hold it with one finger while I screw in the #8 screw.

So after bolting on the aft bracket I attached the struts.

I had to open the canopy and attach the struts in their fully extended position.
