Re: [DML] Motorized bonnet action


Would you be willing to provide some close-up shots of the mounting

Also, why the complicated basic stamp for control? Wouldn't some
relays and limit switches accomplish the job?

Lastly - what happens if the linear actuator dies? Would you still be
able to open the hood?

Cool setup, by the way. :)
