I'll do the experiment! Does the CA glue thickens in the process or it stays as fluid as when it leaves the bottle?

        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.
