[V8] hood opening, again

I pull the lever under the dash and just the passenger side of the hood pops,
but the driver side stays latched. I can't get my fingers under the driver
side of the hood. Oy. I'll try again tomorrow.  I may need to use a needle
nose pliers to pull further on the cable under the dash. When I do, I'm
going to wire up an emergency pull cord. Suggestions?

It's a good thing the price was right, or I'd be not happy. There's another
5-speed in the marketplace, in case anyone wants to share my miser.
