RE: [DML] Motorized bonnet action



This is cool, but is there any way to get it to open and close any faster?
How much space does it take up in the bonnet?

Many DeLorean owners have installed Toby Petersen's Trunk-a-loft Kit. 
It's a great alternative to pulling the release lever under the dash, and
it's wise to have a backup just in case you break your trunk release cable.
But I wanted my bonnet to  do more than just unlatch. I wanted to motorize
its motion from a fully closed to fully open position. To see a video of my
remote control power-bonnet using a linear actuator and microcontroller for
motor control, click the link

It will take a while for the quicktime movie to load. It's about 5 minutes
long. My best advice is: click the link, go grab a beer, and when you come
back it will be ready to play.

This car and the soon-to-be Mac Mini DeLorean integration will be at Ken's
Show in Chicago over Father's Day weekend. Hope to see you there!
