If anybody needs to order it from here just send me a PM and we will go from there, not sure how it will pan out yet as Steve will be flat out for a couple of weeks with the list next door.
anyway here it is.
Auto Boot Lift Mod
I have recently been working on an automatic boot lifting mod, that will fully open the boot with a press of your remote button, or the in car boot release button.
This mod has been fully tested on a mk2 facelift 75 saloon. It cannot be guaranteed to work on a zt with boot spoiler, purely for the fact that I haven't tried one as yet. If anybody wishes to purchase a set for their zt to try then this is fine
As of the moment, this mod doesn't work on a tourer tailgate due to the geometry of the tourer hinge assembly being different. I will however, be trying to develop this mod to suit the tourer at a later date.
I now have sought suppliers for all the materials required, and have managed to keep costs to a minimum.
I must stress that this is a 'Non Profit Venture'. I have NO financial gain from it.
It is purely something that I wanted for my car, and once perfected, wanted to offer it to other fellow members.
A little more about the mod now
This video is the development stage of the 1st version I tried, which worked pretty well. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_B8DAK-2pIE
However, I wasn't 100% happy with it, so back to drawing board
This video is the near finished product minus one part (plastic bush to keep spring central)
The springs are being manufactured specially for this mod, locally to me.
They will be manufactured from a galvanised steel, so no rust issues later down the line.
The other parts used will be made by myself using stainless steel and nylon, so again, no rust issues
The whole assembly is then covered in heat shrink to give it a more oem and aesthetically pleasing look.
Due to the fact that I have to keep down a 12 hour a day job, and have family commitments, I will be offering these kits on a list basis. I expect to be able to produce 10 sets per week, with the first sets being ready to ship, week commencing Monday 28th May 2012.
The cost of the kits will be Ã‚Â£30 per set inclusive.
I'll offer them in 2 ways.
1. As a kit, which will include 2 springs, 2 nylon bushes, 2 nylon washers, 2 stainless steel spacers, 2 galvanised penny washers and 2 lengths of heat shrink tubing. I'll also either send out fitting instructions with these, or create a how to on the forum for you to refer to.
2. For the people that don't want the DIY version, I'll do a completely made up set of struts which will take you 5 minutes to swap over. This is on an exchange basis though, and it requires you to be able to swap the struts over within 7 days of receiving the new ones, and send me your old struts back, ready to be modded for another person.
The cost as mentioned earlier is Ã‚Â£30 inclusive for either option to UK destinations. Outside the UK will incur extra postage charges.The advantage of option 1 is that you won't have to pay an extra postage cost to send your old struts back to me.
I think that covers everything but if you have any further questions, feel free to ask, and I can amend the above to suit if required.
