Bear Claws

As it turns out I bought the bear claws, but never installed them, I sold the car. Thanks

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.

Ripper 410 Done both on the 48 model the stock ones can be modified to work however the bear claws work so much better and are actually more secure when closed the stock latch seems to have a looser fit even after modification
