    Ryan I like it not a fan of the lexus lights as they stand but should look trick with what you plan to do. What mechanism are the bodyshop using to pop the boot? Just that it will be very heavy as is, and you may find that by the time you open it and run around its fallen shut on itself again. Either use a time delayed solenoid, or the whole lock mechanism from a ford fucus - it doesn't have the 2nd catch so wont fall due to weight and lock again ( sorry if I'm being confusing! lol )

    I was actually going to be asking that sometime this week . i fitted a solenoid last week but still had my original button so never really used it .only when showing it off. so i think the focus lock is a must unless u can get popper type mechanism?
