Hi there,

Building a replica - does anyone know:
(1) Only one boot strut, or one for each side?
(2) what is the specification for the strut?
(3) Know of any other car the strut can be borrowed from, i.e. same spec?

Cheers - Scott

Hey mate...

Only 1 strut needed in the boot.

Not sure as to the specs on the strut.... Just got to you local auto store and see what they have. Any general strut should do the trick.
