Shock Struts, Seats

Stacey started to install the front seats and figured out how they go in.  I want to sit in the plane prior to drilling the rudder pedals so she's working on making that happen (plus I can make airplane noises).  I began assembling the shock struts so that once I get a set of wheels/brakes I have the option of mounting up the gear.  The shock strut springs are kind of hard to compress but assembly is straight forward.  I do worry a bit about where I'll find replacement strut O-rings 20 years down the road but will address that when the time comes.
