WHOOP WHOOP WARNING.
I installed the strut on the pilots door pictured aboove and soon after tried to pull it down from the front edge about a foot outboard like I always did with the suction cup...crack...split. The door - original fiberglass and Plexiglas bubble door supplied by Zenith - broke at the fiberglass corner and radiated out down and aft in the Plexiglas. Quite a bit of bending torque is applied to the corner...my bad. Stop drilled the crack, sealed it with "special Plexiglas glue kind of like crazy glue" but made for this application Fabricated a piece of 6061 T6 for a support and "bolted" it in place for extra rigidity. Don't have the final picture but wanted to get this out FAST to the folks.
Still happy with the strut but not the crack - oh well still grinnin
