Gas shocks for front flip up window
The drivers front window on many Volvo C30x’s flip out. They are held out via two rigid steel spars which must be manually placed. That simply won’t do.
So I replaced them with gas shocks. two 30 lb gas shocks.
I was able to reuse the bottom spar mount, but had to weld on a new mount on the window frame for the upper end of the shock.
