Countach: Replacing Hood opening cable


Body of Message

Today I replaced the blocked hood opening cable of the luggage compartment on my Countach. As I told on the big list the cables are normal Campagnolo Bicycle brake cables. I needed about an hour to install it, totally with removing the airscoops , finding out how all thi works you need about 3 hours. Biggest deal was you put the wire into the little hole under the left radiator and get in out at the door sill, needed some tries. The length of the cable is 2,5 meters, but better take 3, you can always cut but never append... The cable for the engine compartment is a little bit shorter about 2m long, I didn"t change that one because it still works fine. Raymond
