Default tips for building shocks and gluing tires + others

i came across this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rixBJu93Qyw&eurl= and thought i was very helpfull, and was wondering what tricks and tips others use when building their shocks, do you have a better way or can you think of something to add to this?

I have to admit , The duct tape idea for the shocks is something I will try.

The best way for tires I feel is the electrical tape . The Panther bands I had , lost there strength after gluing 8 1/8scale tires .
