    Oh... and in the video I noted that you needed to make something special in order to access your hood latch. This is actually untrue and I feel like an idiot, ha... I even made a little cable for mine. You can still free your hood by simply getting your hand under the hood and pushing the latch to the left. I guess I got hung up on having always lifted it from under -- go figure. I also stated that I would be cutting the latch, I did not, but rather just bent it downward.
