Default 1987 Honda shadow Carburetor reinstall? how?

Ok Guys I managed to get the carbs out but had to get new carb boots..
I rebuilt the carbs.. and replaced boots..
But can someone tell me whats the trick to getting them in?
Boots on bottom first? then cant install uppers.. No room between engine and the top rubber mounts to breather box..
This box is part of frame! What a bear!! Gotta be a trick to this..
Any advice would help much!
Thanks to all for advice!

Got thinking about it...

If yours is a 700, then this thread might help!

Install the boots on the cylinder heads first. Spray or wipe a little armorall on the lips. Set the carbs in place and push down usually one will start to pop in. put a piece of wof wook ofver the inlet and use (gently) a pry bar between the frame rail and lever it down with very little pressure and they will pop right in.
