Has anyone modified a hardlid to rise vertical instead of back openning only ? adding two extra gas struts etc.

i've had a look into for my old ute.

i was given the impression that all you needed was 4 gas struts on each corner that will cause it to be able to rise angular and straight up vertical.

hope that helps abit lol.

Holdens were never designed to turn, brake or accelerate... as long as you can slam in subwoofers and dump it on rims 60% of australias 17-25 yo population are happy

I like this idear but what will stop the lid flopping around and it will also have to lock at the front . 3 struts may make it hard to pull up and push down i thjnk it will take a bit of nutting out but would be awsome once dunn ,would make it alot easyer to get to all our gear in the back.
