Raising radio cover automaticly?
First of all, Hello! What a great forum you have here, I finally registered!
So here's the deal, I've decided to install my first carputer, I have rather good programing knowledge when it comes to web so I hope any software side customization I will need to do later down the line won't be a problem for me. However in my car, I have this cover that "flips"(90 degrees) over the radio and little storage compartment under the radio, I took it out, and started looking into automating it's lifting up when engine starts and bringing it down once it's off.
I know a lot of cars do this but I presume they do it with couple of switches(for stopping the motor) and a motor, my problem is that this wasn't designed to be automatic.. I was looking into a small fishing line or even cable pulling it up however I'd need a motor that is bipolar as well one that will hold it in place once raised, but is that best idea? Is there someone that already done this sort of a thing and recorded the steps? My searching brought up nothing, any help would be appreciated!
