Re: Need help with power top mechanism
i thought about doing a power roof once too, but then i realized that it wasnt really worth it since you have to manually unzip the rear windows anyways......so all the motors would do would be raise and lower the top part, which takes all of 10 seconds anyways, all the rest of the stuff still needs to be done by hand.
if you still want to go through with it, i would use a worm gear mechanism used in a lot of cars....i know Honda used them for thier flip up head lights....i saw them on my girlfriends car when i was fixing it..,... just grab motors, measure, make brackets and go!!!!
