My car is black... and I open my trunk often. Closing a black trunk leaves behind TONS of fingerprints. I was thinking of buying something or somehow constructing an electronic trunk closer, where I can press a button inside to pull the trunk closed. Something like the new Mercedes have...

Any solutions?

I'd go for the gloves, make them leather and wear a trench coat.

There must be such a thing.
My sister's Caddy closes the trunklid on its own after you close it most of the way.....it moves it to completely shut position on its own.

you mean you want a "pop-trunk" kit playboy
its a small hydrolic that mounts to one of the trunk arms and opens and closes the trunk with a push of a botton, or a swich, like what your windows have (push up, trunk goes up. push down, trunk goes down)

stock *****. my hatch struts are shot on my 89 maro so instead of buying new ones, im opting for linear acuators. you should go for the ricer flip flop lid and actuators.
