Has any one out there ever installed Bear claws on a '46-'48 Ford or modified the stock latches to work. thanks, Vince
I'm having a similar problem with mine lebrush, how much ft/lb solenoid are you using? I do not have solenoids yet for mine and I want to buy them. Worried that they will not pull hard enough to open the door.
Has anyone installed bear claws on a car that already been painted? I think that is something that would be a question for both of us.
Not trying to steal your post lebrush, just get the answer to the question you asked.
