Per Brian I guess I'm guilty of "Jerry-Rigging" my own system together. I always thought the term was "Jury Rigging" but what do I know?
The "issues" that I have are that it was cheap and has worked perfectly for many years. This was all done before any of the kits were available.
Mine is the combination of the original ideas of TC members LukeWarm and MatKlemp and some unknown ebay guy selling plans many years back, with some of my own thrown in. LW originally mounted motors to the undersides of the inner fenders and used a linkage system made from flat bar and nylon washers to operate the bellcranks on the doors. He made a timer circuit to operate the doors using a stock headlight switch. Pretty cool.
I copied his motor mounting idea, but used 1/4" threaded rod and heim joints for a more adjustable linkage.
I originally operated the doors via a SPDT momentary toggle switch located in the ashtray compt.. This was from the e-bay plans guy. It worked well, but was a bit cumbersome.
Mat Klemp figured out how to adapt/wire the Firebird headlight module. He mounted his motors directly to the headlight buckets. With his help I was able to replace the toggle switch with the Firebird module and retain the linkage system. He was kind enough to send me a module free of charge as well. Again, pretty cool.
I originally used Chrysler LeBaron motors (per ebay guy), which worked just fine. Those were unfortunately destroyed when my friend piled my car up. The motors I have now are 88-89 Toyota Celica. I just went to the u-pull and looked for something that might work - these are excellent quality motors - much nicer than the Mopar ones. You could likely use any 12V DC motor you want as long as you can mount it where you want and attach a lever to it.
I you want to do this yourself, let me know via PM. I have a spare module as well as the wiring pigtails with nice weatherpack connectors that I'll give
you. I also have the module wiring diagram (somewhere!)
It does open and close the doors quickly, perhaps that is the issue our Mod has with them. I honestly couldn't care less. Pull the switch and they open. Push the switch and they close. Every time.
Here's an ancient thread from right after I originally did it. https://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=87077
