Tilt Hood Project

Get the awesome custom look you have seen in all your classic/sport truck magazines. Electric Tilt hoods have been a customization secret for many years. With electric linear actuators you can have the same look many of the top rides possess with out the fabrication headaches. Don't be left out! Firgelli Automations Electric Tilt Hood Kit is a universal kit so it can work for most models of cars and trucks. Firgelli Automations is not responsible for damage to your hood or vehicle by improper installation. Professional installation recommended. May require minor cutting or welding.

To decide on the stroke you need for the Hood opening we suggest you measure in your vehicle the open and closed positions of where you will attach the actuator. The difference in that dimension will tell you the stroke of actuator that you need. Secondly you need to work out what force you need from the actuator, to do that try to open and close by hand your hood at the point where you will be attaching the Actuator. This will tell you if the force is under 100lbs or over. Then choose the force actuator based on this.

If you are using 1 actuator on one side, you may also need to use a gas shock on the other side to equalize the force, or add 2 actuators, (1 on each side). Deciding on weather you need 1 or 2 actuators will depend on how flimsy your hood is

Here is what you need to order for this project:

  1. One linear actuator, or 2 depending on how flimsy your hood is, use instructions above to work out what you need
  2. Mounting brackets, one on each end
  3. Manual rocker switch for a dash mounted switch
  4. Or remote control
  5. LR12V Relay if you want to operate the hood by pressing the remote button once
