    Hi All,

    Hope i will find an answer here :).

    Okay where to start, my electronics knowledge is well, non-existing :eek:, but trying to figure this out.

    I am building a control board for my truck with toggle switches, making it a touch red neck and rod lol, and what I want to do is open and close my bonnet, and open or close my manual choke. Please don't ask questions why, just tell me if it can be done, and if so how?

    One board thingy that controls it all, using a (on)-off-(on) switch, opening my bonnet will consist of a servo or actuator releasing the bonnet latch and then powering two actuators to lift the bonnet, and closing the bonnet just reversing the two actuators polarity. The choke will be using an normal on off toggle switch, that when i switch it on a servo pushes the choke closed, and flicking it off, reopens my choke.

    is there a board that can do this, is there another way this can be done, what servos digital/analog if i am using or want to use an anolog input.

    So who is up to whack me with some solutions!
