Default Automatic bonnet / boot supports

ok.. please dont flame me for not searching but I dont know what there called so cant really do a search. I was just wondering if any one had sourced / found some automatic supports that will lift / close your bonnet boot via a button on the dash.. I'm assuming these would need to be a hydraulic thing with a controlled motor. I'm also guessing you wouldnt need a reservoir because it would just go back in the other end.. a sort of hydraulic ram type thing may be. Something similar to how the honda accord estate can open and close its boot lid.

thanks

Steve

Default Auto struts

Hi Steve, If you look on the Autoloc website you will find what you require and they are electric so no reservoir to fit! They do openers for doors, bonnets and boot lids from a remote control but I don't think they are cheap as they are in the USA!!
Cheers madolddog
