    Power Lift

    Not Sure If This Is The Place To Post This... But If Anyone Has Seen 2fast2furious you Might Know What I'm Talking About...

    I Wanted To Know If Anyone Knew What A Good Thing Would Be To Use If You Wanted To Make A Panel Of A Raised Floor In The Trunk Of A Car Up...

    Like You Have The Actual Floor Of The Trunk, Then A Custom Made Floor Raised Above That So You Can Mount The Amps, Computer, And What Not Inside... But The Raised Floor Is Made Of 2-3 Panels And When You Push/Hold A Button The Panels Will Open Up To Show All The Beautiful Work On The Amps And Such Inside...

    Any Idea Would Be Appreciated

    First idea, stop Capitalizing Every Word In Your Post. It's hard to read and silly.

    Second, you might want to look up 'actuators'. Those are easy to use devices (kinda like electric hydraulic cylinders) that'll do what you want.

    i suggest you look at some tv or plasma lifts or something of that nature and use that as a platform to mount your amps etc. maybe that would work for your project idea since you could control it via a remote etc.

    I have something like that in my car, I'll try to get some pics.

    I used laid a board of MDF across the entire truck area, and cut a hole in the middle, where the spare tire well is (but no spare tire) and made a "basket" out of MDF and fiberglass where the Amp goes and a clear lucite panel over top. The whole thing is flush with the floor.

    I have to say... LMFAO!

    You could save a few bucks and do this with simple hydraulic lifter, no electric neccesary. Probably just pick some up from an auto parts shop... look for hatchback lift or hatchback something-or-other-similar. A car I know had one that would work is the Pontiac Phoenix, circa 1983 I think.

    Anyway it would supply constant pressure, and you could just mount it to one side. Then its a simple matter of some kind of latch built in to hold it shut. Cool would be a pushbutton latch similar to those on some trunks.

    Neat idea man.. got me thinkin.

    More easy:
    Use trunk cilinders letterly translated from the Dutch...
    Maybee known as Gas springs?
    Use a servo from a central lock system that keeps the platforms in place.
    When you hit the button, the servo pulls back the little hook, and the springs push the panel up.
    Maybe that's an idea?
    The panels won't close mechanicely, but it's a realy cheap sollution.

    But why do you wan'to do it?
    So you can still drop supermarket stuff in the trunk, without damaging youre ice?
