    i shaved mine and ran a looong cable similar to a bicycle brake cable from the door to the inner front fender and connected it to a handle that was hidden away. when/if the battery dies you just pull the handle and the door opens. keep in mind that you cant tell ANYONE about it or your car is as good as gone.

    aren't shaved handles against NHRA rules? i know that's the case in AZ, so if you ever want to take it to the track, you better research it first.

    I would honestly prefer not to mention the company that made it. No offense, but i have only seen 1 other car with this same hood, and i kinda want to keep it that way. Everyone has very similar hoods on thier stangs, and being different has cost me alot in that department. so if anyone on here knows where it came from, i would please ask that you kept it on the low. :flag: from what they told me, they made a run of about 50 of them to test market, and had alignment issues, so they stopped production. They ended up selling about 20 of the hoods to the public, and the rest were bought by employees or destroyed.

    (i took the pictures down after i thought about it too much :p )
