Apologies guys -

I was able to upload the video to youtube moments ago...below link should work:

The vehicle was shipped to me from New Brunswick to Vancouver, BC in August however during shipping the passenger side window was broken, glass has been cut, tempered and installed as of yesterday - took a while to find a local professional capable and willing to do so.

I should have the car in my garage as of late week at which point I can take additional footage - this original video was done by seller.

My trending thought is that they way in which door struts are accessed is through removal of interior door card? This coming to me after examining build manuals and videos...would I be on the right track?

1986 Countach Replica

Hello Lamboclone forum -

Guys I am brand new to this site and am looking for assistance, advice and insight regarding a new acquisition of mine.

After 15+ years of looking; I have purchased a nearly complete 86 countach replica, built on an 88 Fiero non-stretched chassis.

I am learning quickly that this will be a rewarding but enduring project and first task to tackle of pronvincial safety is that of the door strut.

As it stands now, and quasi visible in the video link below the passenger side door strut has lost almost all compression and will need to be replaced...the question I don't know the answer too is how to access the mounting points. One in side skirt is visible, one in door is not.

I have no record of original kit manufacturer and am unsure how to dissemble door to access strut head, I am of the assumption that interior door panel would be removeable for access but can only assume this based on other incomplete skits I have seen, how to know wether this is screwed together or glued is another challenge.

I am mechanically inclined, patient and seeking a few starting points to begin tackling this.

Apologies if this had been entered in the wrong area but will learn the ropes quickly as I imagine I will be here frequently!

Please let me know your thoughts should there be any you think may help.
