What is the best way to install the trunk rods without killing yourself? Anyone have a good technique?

Thanks

i use a good pair of vice grips as tight as i can clamp them. also be sure to use safety glasses or better yet a safety shield as extra insurance.

In my 65, it took me an hour to get them on, and alot of sweat. They are very tough to torque, because it shifts as you pull on it. I had to do the second side backwards(upper hinge bracket last verus first) it just couldnt get it to go on any other way. BE CAREFUL... there is alot of energy stored right before you seat the rod.
