Looks like he is using 4 actuators, two to move the doghouse forwards and two to lift it. Were the alignment pints horizontal or were the actuators coordinated some how?
BJ, looks like the doghouse moves fore-aft about 12" if the pins are horizontal like i suspect I'd expect the sequence would be on opening the doghouse moves forwards to clear cowl and bumper then tilts up., reverse on closing. I don't see any signs of the inner fenders tho or if there is an underhood panel to seal off the top of radiator when closed which could lead to cooling issues.
