Reverse Hood

I installed the first parts of the reverse hood. I couldn't finish it because it takes at least two people to mount the hood. Maybe next week.

Should be pretty easy to install a couple linear actuators to make it power. Install a manual switch in the cab with a switch that cuts the power when it is fully extended and fully closed. The only really expensive part of my kit was the 4 channel remote and the custom brackets.

Installation is done.

The reverse hood is installed and mostly fitted. I have some very small tweaks left to do. Here is a video of the hood in action.

http://www.project-quicksilver.com/e...o_Hood_mp4.avi

The two links are for the same video, they are just in two different formats... if one does not work for you, try the other.

That is really cool! I wouldn't mind such a kit myself. That would've looked cool on my '53 but wouldn't work as it would bind as soon as it starts sliding forwards. I'm quite happy with my design though even if it's still manually operated and also a bit on the heavy side. I do however plan to change it over to aluminium later on.

I think you are just 1 actuator away from making it power. Electric Life sells the actuators separately if you want. http://www.electric-life.com/shopdis...INEAR+ACTUATOR

don't pay any attention to the price... $1.10 is probably wrong
