Popping boot with Remote After fitting Spoiler
My son has just fitted a XR style spoiler (from the Spoiler Factory in Armadale WA) to his EF Futura. The added weight to the boot lid means that the remote and dash switch will no longer pop it. Anyone got a solution? Ideas that occur to me are:
a) Seeing if a Fairlane or XR series strut is stronger and fits (assuming they had bigger heavier boot lids/lids spolier combo);
b) Adding a rubber piece to the top of the strut rod so it has to comprssed to shut the lid and will pop the lid when the remote is used.
c) Using bigger but softer rubber stops to the boot lid so they act as springs to pop the lid.
