Is there a special trick to install the little spring that captures the black headlight bucket to the fender extension?
My bratwurst size finger doesn't fit inside to get it on the little ledge in the extension. Should I sart with the spring attached in the extension before I put the bucket in, or should I install the bucket and then try the spring?
All suggestions are more than welcome

I did the installation of the bucket first then used a pair of needle nose pliers to hold and pull the spring.
This kept my fingers out of the way.

I use an exhaust spring hook from my motorcycle. Basically a handle with a hook made from about 1/8" steel
