Fixed Hood Latch – 1966 VW Beetle Project

I adjusted the hood latch today so that it actually works.  It’s an interesting mechanism, indeed.  It’s designed such that if the hood latch cable (the cable runs from the latch to the inside of the car) ever breaks, then it automatically unlocks itself.    This prevents you from ever getting locked out of the front luggage compartment.  =)
