    T-Handle Tap Wrench

    Absolutely ingenious idea. Props on the idea of using a T-Handle Tap Wrench as a hood release. FYI, you can pick them up from Home Depot for $10.99. Surely beats trying to find a hood release from a junk yard or pick-n-pull. Most every Civic (95-00) I come by is already stripped completely down leaving nothing worth salvaging >.<

    ^ i have the t handle for my hood release handle i actually think it looks better than the one that was there.
    it seems that the oem handle breaking is pretty common, but i mean its a 15 or so year old piece of plastic.
