I used a starter solenoid on my old Manta. Took off the exterior handle and bolted the solenoid into the bottom of the door then just connected it to the existing lock mechanism via a piece of old handbrake cable. Rather than a hidden switch I used a special female connector that required the corresponding male bit to make the connection and hence pop the door. Mounted that inside the fuel filler flap and it worked a treat and was very cheap! :D

just make sure that you have an 'alternative' method of opening the door just in case the battery does dead on you!!! guess how I found that one out!!!:sniff:

I use a solenoid on my pop doors, got it from pop browns. Use a hidden magnet reader with a switch in the boot to turn the magnet reader off. Never had any worries with it, but have hooked up a release cable just in case. Got the receipt somewhere if you want any more info or his number.

Good luck
Tom
