Michael Hendrix mentioned the problem with superglue when attaching struts. The glue cures so fast that there isn't time to adjust the struts.
I stumbled across a method to slow down the curing. Put a drop into the plastic lid of a soda bottle. Wait for a few minutes then apply to the strut and/or strut hole. There is something about the soft plastic lid material that retards the hardening of the glue. When it's set to your satisfaction hit it with a shot Zip Kicker.
Let me know how it works for you.
