I removed the front doors and welded attachments for the front gas struts. While I had them off I was contemplating how to make them more secure in the closed position. I decided to add a spring on each side, which seems to work quite well. It provides some resistance on the handle when opening and pulls the mechanism back to the closed position. One small downside is that it will make them slightly harder to close. Ideally I would not have the over-center acting in the open position so the latch remains open when the door is open, but it's not possible.
