BOOTS. In and open.

Postby sarusa » Thu Jan 04, 2018 12:16 pm

Noticed somewhere in the forums a complaints about lack of space for your fingers under the boot lid to open it.
Well for those that haven't discovered it yet, there is a lot more space in the corners! :D

Or get a wing fitted and lift where it bolts to the boot

Before I put a spoiler on my LX, I used to use the chrome piece that goes along the bottom of my boot. And well in my Ralliart, the hatch has the luxury of an easy latch

I just put a clear vynil protective strip on top of the bumper so my fingers don't scratch the paint

A while back when I first got my CJ I asked if any of the auto open systems you find in some cars now can be retro fitted to the CJ sedan, short answer is yes, if you have a lot of money to spend on the car to design and engineer it.

I used to have a strip of carbon look wrap on the top edge, as you can see in the photo, after the crash (not my fault) I got one of those stainless metal strips with Lancer written in the middle (eBay).

You could retrofit gas lifters.
I might add a pic of my car once I style the exterior a bit :).

I've heard of some fitting stronger gas struts or adding springs which help in the lift, no sure how it affects closing the boot.

That's what I meant. I guess it depends on how strong they are. Upgraded gas lifters are probably easier
