He said that the actuators came from Electric Life and have the motors integrated in to the actuator. I asked him about the hinges, he told me that they were made by a guy who ran a jewelry store and built these on the side...no further info about the source was available. What isn't shown in the photos are the alignment pins in the firewall and the running boards.
Thought that I would give those who are building one-piece frontends a little "food for thought".
Man, that's quite a contraption! Looks a lot like my front end loader.
Clean looking work though.
