I'd be interested in a set of the black ones. Really wouldn't want to spent $150 on a set of door struts though.

Hello everyone,
I have come across a company that manufactures high performance and high quality gas struts. I am talking with them about the possibility of manufacturing a small batch of new door struts for us. The details are:
The strut will be the same length both collapsed and extended as the original Stabilus struts. They will have full dampening at the end of stroke to prevent door bounce. They will have the same force as original struts - no sagging doors. They have temperature compensation built in which means that cold weather should not affect the force as much as it does in the case of regular gas struts. This doesn't mean that it will maintain the same opening force in extremely cold weather but the effect should be minimized. They come with full 2 year replacement warranty against defects in manufacturing and materials.
We can have the struts in two flavors:
1. Powder coated black cylinder with black nitrate coated piston.
2. Brushed 304 stainless cylinder with chrome coated piston.

If we can get enough people interested the prices will be:
For black/black gas struts: $30 each or $50 for a set of two with free shipping
For 304/chrome gas struts: $80 each or $150 for a set of two with free shipping

Please let me know if this idea is worth pursuing. In my opinion the price is very good and the full 2 year replacement warranty is a very good insurance.

Anyone interested?
