I just quickly brainstormed a back up hood latch cable from a broken OEM one I had left over.
I routed it above the intercooler then to behind the turn signal of the drivers side. I will grind down the cable end stop to fit in the factory hood latch along with the stock main cable.

In the advent of a broken main cable, I will have to take off my turn signal to access my hidden spare cable. I didn't want it rubbing against the radiator or intercooler in the wind when cruising down the road so it is attached and snug against the bottom of the core support in its factory cable sheath.

It will be much faster than any other method to get the hood open in a time of need.

I am grabbing a second beer and headed out to the shop to work on the 2wd RC a bit. Enjoy the game tonight for whomever is watching it.
Iím doing the same in the shop only thing that I like about the super bowl is the commercials
