Re: Hydraulic bonnet ram conversion

On my old Ford Cortina it had a unique bonnet stay - it was in the boot. It was a length of brush shaft cut to suit and a large cup hook screwed on either end.

Nowadays you could make one from a fancy carbon fibre rod - a few added extras such as shiney tape, etc and it would look a treat.
