[edit 1] added current working hatch photo [/edit 1]

Progress of me fixing the hatchback support using questionable methods because the guys at autozone decided helping a cute girl was more important than helping the guy who had been at their store 3 times that day and had been waiting for over 30 minutes for one of them to come hold the hatch open. so instead I propped open the hatch with the old support and did what I could until I gave up, threw their tools on the counter and went home, just in time to make my roommate help me. Took about 5 minutes after that but ran out of daylight, so pictures of it fully functioning will come later today, till then, here is what I have.

Also had to replace the missing bracket on the left side of the hatch, plus the ball joint for the upper part of the strut, and the bracket came without the necessary bolts to attach it, so I got the missing pieces at autozone, and as I said, got no assistance from them to do anything with it. not saying all of them are bad (because really autozone isn't great anyway) but the one I went to yesterday is on my shit list for sure.
