Default Reassembling Mk III Hammer/Safety/Slide Release

Yep, I pretty much effed myself over. Can anyone link me to a good step-by-step for un-detail stripping a Mk III? It's mostly the hammer assembly that's giving me issues.

To clarify, the parts I don't know how to get back into place are: the hammer itself, what I believe is the sear spring (single wire twisted into a weird shape), a thin plate with a hole in it, and another strange-looking metal thing that I think is part of the slide release.

You could just do this instead.

As tempted as I am to do that while I've got it apart, I'd rather just get it back together, and order a Mk II hammer and bushing some time in the future.

I've managed to identify all the parts, but haven't been able to find a step-by-step yet. Maybe someone here could give me a few tips? I need to know:

Which way should the sear and sear spring face?
Which way should the mag disconnect and mag disconnect spring face?

That's a Mk II, so it doesn't tell me how to get the mag disconnect back in, but it does show how to get the sear straightened out. Thanks much.
