Trying to come up with a way to automatically open and close the trunk on my 41. So far the best method that I have come up with is using a simple actuator, but the question that I have is how do you latch it or do you need to. I would like to know what other people have done. As with most cars of that era the door is not lightest thing in the world. I think the doors weigh less.

Thanks :D

Don't know if it will help- but on my 'J I used a Ball's actuator and the original slide lift to hold it up- when closed it is held by a small bear claw (two versions are sold- large for doors, small for trunks and such) The Ball's have worked beautifully for me and are very reliable. You could also use some gas struts to hold a heavier lid. good luck
