I would be careful. If you put a real hatch-ram on it may shoot the hatch across the lake.

If your gonna ad Bling to the engine compartment you should at least add an actuator so it lifts on its own....I just realized I hae a good dela of trouble typing when I am drunk. That was a chore.

I'm not sure an electric actuator would fit. Every cubic inch of the engine compartment of Slim Lady has engine shoved in it forcefully! Sometimes I think they had to use a torch to heat the hull so it would expand enough to get the engine in.

Masher,

You may just need to measure the Open and Closed length then go over to autozone, napa, pep boys etc... I had a few hatch back cars with bad shocks and that's all I had to do...unless these are special ones....

If you need to pimp I can put you in touch with this guy..... http://www.myspace.com/index.cfm?fus...endID=39862282

Mine now are just the standard small shocks which work good they are just wearing down. Dont need/want an electric one. Just some funky looking shocks.

Napa always have a good selection for cheap. Just pull one off and match it.
