I used these type of struts on the swing up overhead cabinets and bench cabinets on my 13 QBB. I had to fabricate some aluminum brackets and used aluminum pop rivets to secure. They look and function great!

Would you mind posting some pics?  This is something I would like to do as well...

If they are too powerful move the upper mount point closer to the door.  The directions said to put the upper mount 5 cm from the door, this caused a twist in my doors,  I moved it as close as I could and now they work great.
