Default Gas Spring Replacements

I'm trying to replace a number of the interior and exterior gas springs on the hatches. Just plain tired of hitting my head.
The existing springs were made by the "Gas Spring Co." in Colmar, PA. I've contacted Orr & Orr who is now the distributor for Stabilus - the business that that has either bought out or filled the void of Gas Spring.
I've supplied a sales rep with the numbers that are on the cylinder of the springs. He says they are too old to be cross referenced with anything Stabilus distributes but asked if I could supply the "Blue Bird number" for the parts.
After trying several searches here, I've come up empty. Can someone point me to the BB numbers or a supplier that might understand the Gas Spring numbers?

Just ordered some myself. $16.75 a piece. Called them directly. The person I spoke with said this is the one for Bluebirds. Also known as part number FMR11.

Should have added this number is for the inside overhead storage.

If you need door air springs, I got mine for the GEN door by measuring the spring and us the chart in MC Master/CARR (+/- an inch) door weight, I got the springs and pivot bolt matched up perfect. < $ 15.00!
