i don't know if it is possible with the falcons, but is it possible to get a hydraulic strut or something so the boot will open by itself when you push the button. I saw it on my Aunts old mercedes and thought it looked pretty cool. Any help will be valued cheers

Anything is possible these days.

You'd just require a gas strut positioned so that it lifts as soon as the boot pops open abit.

And all you need is a boot popper, and it'd lift up.

Of course the placement would be crutial.

I did this on an old corolla show car i had years ago, i used the bonnet strut off a ZL fairlane.

If you were to use 2 of these, and make sure your placement is perfect, it should work.
