Default Ruger MKIII

So I am borrowing a friends Ruger Mark III for a few weeks. I am going to attempt to clean the thing tomorrow. Anyone have any good tips on how to reassemble it? I've done it once before and it took me forever. I know there are TONS of videos out there explaining it but if any of you guys have a personal recommendation or a certain video that helped you that'd be great!

If it's anything like my Mk II, it's sort of a pain in the ass, especially reassembly. I used to have trouble getting the mainspring housing out, but now I just use a empty shell casing to dig it out.

bad news is the only way to make the process easier is by doing it a whole bunch of times to wear it in...if the gun hasnt been takin apart a bunch of times then its goin to be tight and a real pain in the ass.
