1984 Carrera Replacement of Hood Gas Strutt

Body and Interior

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1984; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2L stock; Total Mileage: 77K miles;

I am replacing the gas strut on the drivers side of the hood. I have not found a means to insert the pin in the bottom and apply the clip which holds the pin in place at the bottom of the strut. There is little room to get a hand or tool into this area. I can either put the pin in backwards and then can not get the clip on the pin or I am unable to put the pin in the other direction (outside to inside) in which case I could get the clip on it.Is there a trick or a bright idea for doing this task?
