Bubble door gas struts

Thanks Michael, Jonathan, Phill, Bob, and everybody else who took the time to respond to my request.

You guys have been very helpful.

Michael, I think I will go to NAPA and try your solution since it seems to be working.

I originally purchased two struts from Aircraft Spruce, but I didn't realize they were really for raising a canopy.

They are short and very strong, will not work very well for the larger movement needed of swinging open a door. I envy you guys…
