I am on my 3rd hood release cable. My tire eats right through them and by the time I find out it's happened they are ruined. My car isn't that low, but it's not at stock height either.

I bought some materials today at a local bike shop and plan on fabricating a cable that is longer. The new cable is braided stainless so it won't rust either. I should get this done in the next couple days. I expect total cost to be around $25. I will get more up on this when I get further along.

I have been meaning to do something like this for years honestly. Now that I have my core support all back together I just can't see keeping the old busted ass cable.
