1. the bigger strake sections don't look that funny hanging off the doors
I certainly was not impying that the big stakes would look funny. I'm sure either way looks fine; I just chose a different way to go.
2. the longer strake section on a comfort basis is most effective because of
the additional height its gives you at the armpit area than the length of
the arm rest. Simply extending a non-big strake setup so there is a longer
arm rest portion will not give you any additional height.
I guess I wasn't clear about what I'm doing. The profile I'm getting on the door is essentaily the same as your big strake; it does not just extend the height of the elite strake at the door cut. Visualize - the outer edge of the door/stake part meets the elite strake at the door cut; the profile at the fuselage wall meets the elite strake about 15" or so back of the door where the strake is full height.
I will dig up some pictures of the doors open so you can judge for yourself
if they are ugly or not.
No need to be defensive; I'm sure you're way looks fine. I don't know yet how mine will look.
