Sorry to read about your injury. May it fully heal with as little pain as possible.
We got new struts from Amel in La Rochelle last year, as the starboard side one had just failed a few days before our arrival. The new ones are all nice and shiny in silver; the old ones were black with just the pistons being silver.
