21-20, system block studs

This is another example of a bizarrely simple page:  just insert 6 nuts and bolts.  What could possibly be easier?  Well, making sure that you don’t strip the head of one of the screws, that’s what.  On number 6, my son wasn’t able to push down on the nut (held in a long nose vise grip) with enough force for me to get a good grip with the phillips head and it slipped once... twice... another... until it wasn’t useable anymore.  I ended up gripping the head of the bolt with another vice grip and rotating it until I seated it against the nut that Nick was holding.  The bottom skin has a nice circular scar that no one will ever see, but I will always know about... :-(
