thanks guys
i chose to use air to having something different, and i can tap it into my already existing air supply, and it is faster than liner actuaters. but also i am thinking of just using the air cylinder or whatever i use as a cushion, so that when it unlocks it just lifts the door and i pick it up the rest of the way manually then put it down and the air releases and the trunk will slowly lock

So you mean that it will lock under its own weight?

no it will have a pin that will shoot out from the top and lock into the body with a door actuator lock that will lock when it hits the bottom

That's pretty badass, Joe. A suggestion: the 1993-96 Cadillac Fleetwood us a mechanism to latch the trunk and pull it closed. Maybe you could pick something like that up pretty cheap! ;)

Good luck!
Jeff

Joebomber52,

What are you using to open and close the boot lid (trunk lid)? Can you get small air cylinders or something?

I like the idea of that. It's got me thinking about that for my own car now!

With an existing onboard air supply, it is tempting to use it for other things too!

:biggrin:

Sounds good :cool:

Will the air cylinder do the pushing and the spring do the pulling?

:)
