Re: [DML] door struts

I was having very bad luck with door struts until John and I put a 
set of his struts on my car while at Pigeon Forge. This last weekend 
in 20 degree weather I noticed they may be getting weak (but still 
hold the door open). About the best service I've ever had from a set 
of DeLorean door struts.

I'll be seeing how the new ones hold up I guess.
