Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
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 that are already flying. My goal is to have my 701 in the air by mid-summer.
It will have been three and a half years in the making.
Thanks again everybody for helping out. This is a great resource for Zenith builders.
