    Do you wanna tilt the whole nose or just the hood.

    I have done the tilt nose and hated it. It made working on it great but therest of the time it was a miserable experience.

    If you want the hood to tilt forward, look at the 80s model Buick LeSabre (mid-size front wheel drive) hood set up. BMW 3 series (318/325) have a similar set up also. The latch stays in the front and the hood pops open as usual, but then pulls forward and up to flip over the front. Be sure to get the parts in the rear of the hood like the sliders and rollers or the hood will flop around like a tuna in the rear! Actually kinda kool. I have considered doing it myself but not on my Blazer. (I already have a hard enuff time working on it standing on the tire as it is!)
