Great hatch, rear glass, and hood strut service -

I couldn't find the thread where I was told of, but I decided to jump on it. The only downside to working with Frank is he is in Canada, so there is a shipping delay. That was literally the only downside.

I took all 5 of the struts off, mailed them to Frank, and (without shipping) had them in 3 days. Shipping was about 10 days on the front end and 4 days on the back end. That's calendar days, not business. I sent them cheapest possible, he returned them priority mail.

They work GREAT. He replaced two of mine without changing the quoted price and told me immediately that they were unserviceable. That's good customer service. Two strikes of the lift glass key and it opens, all of the way! I still haven't found if I'm going to try and add an auto opener for the main gate, but you can tell the struts can handle it.

Removing proved 10x more difficult than installation. When removing, I had a 2x4 holding the main hatch and then the hood. I had to wait for my wife to get home to hold the glass so I wouldn't scratch it. Stupid little clips are annoying.

Installation was a breeze. I held up the main gate, I'm 6'2" if that helps, and it's push to snap. That's it.

TAKE PICTURES. The orientation is important. I'm not sure they can go on incorrectly, but I triple checked my before photos to be sure.
