    I read an old post of yours where you mentioned the splash well gate on the 23 Regulator. Like many. the latches on mine are broken and they are no longer made and cannot be sourced. I know i can fill the holes where the old latches were inset and then replace with bolt latches but I was thinking of replacing with gas struts instead. That way, if someone (me) forgets to lower the gate when I raise the motor, it will move.

    How can i engineer this? How do I determine what size and strength strut would be needed? Also, where the struts should be located on the gate and on the side of the splash well.

    Basically I want to replicate how the door of the electronics box under the t-top works, just upside down.

    Please help me.
