Power Trunk Opener
I'm looking for a power trunk opener for my 32 Roadster.
I would prefer billet alloy arms and I need the mechanism to unlatch and lift the trunk lid with the push of a remote button and 12 volt supply.
Can anybody recommend a manufacturer or where I can find them.

Downs make a great opener with billet arms and an AutoLoc operator. I bought mine for my AVATAR car thru Yogi's. They ain't cheap!!!! You don't need a latch with the opener as it shuts down and is held and you can't override it by prying.Originally Posted by fastrc
Not meaning to hijack the thread, but anybody got a suggestion on an electric trunk latch?
|Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong!|

Then prowl the junkyards and look at electric trunk openers.
The Soccer Mom vans - Fords to a great extent - have electric openers that look like they'd be easy to adapt.
Probably way better quality than some of the aftermarket stuff.
Caddys had the nice one. You just lower the trunk, until it clicks, and the motor tightens it up. Very cool. Plus, you don't have to slam it to shut it.
My daughter had a '90 Lincoln Continental Signature series that had the same system.

Rocky Hinge have a bearclaw that can be used tho I lke Denny's Caddy piece. Unfortunately we no longer have a U-Pick junkyard around my area - only nasties with RottweilersOriginally Posted by Stu Cool
Absolutely ! Caddy was the first thing that popped in my head. I guess I did make my living off GM's. Hardly had to work on the Ford's. J. J. guys.

Would you or anybody else have a close-up picture of the Downs opener as the picture on the Downs and Yogi's sites are very small and not detailed.
Here is a better picture of the Downs trunk opener. http://www.project33.com/Categoryart...&Category=Body

godspeed32, can you get me a price on shipping the trunk opener assy to Australia via USPS Air Mail.
Geez, you Deuce guys sure do like to spend money! I just used a pair of struts off a Camaro hood and a Dakota Digital solenoid to pop the lock on the trunk of the Merc.....
