Just recently joined here and haven't posted before. I wanted to share this tool I built today. to open 46-48 Chevy hoods. You can view it on the forum below. A fellow wasn't able to get his hood latch cable to operate and it got me thinking about how I would get into mine if it happened to my car so here's what I came up with. Hopefully it helps some others .

dkcoupe is the bow in the screw driver necessary or just the end tip bent work OK.

Without the bend, it wouldn't get up to the latch properly.
