Shock Strut Assembly

Shock strut assembly was completed today.  This was surprisingly easy.  Plans and instructions make it straightforward, you just have to be sure everything is deburred well.  The coil assembly did require some tapping to get it to seat all the way where the snap ring would go in.  Also, you pretty much have to chase the snap ring into its recess with a screwdriver.  I did not fill them with ATF because I still need to get the XAM7-M rod end bearings from Avipro.
