First of all, Welcome to the CAC! You picked the the right site, or should I say the only site for Corvettes!

Now as for your hood, I too tried the skinny arm trick at a neighbor's home on his shark, unfortunately the skinny arm was mine. After that painful event I found a great step by step guide at Mid-America's website, just follow this link to see the instructions.

Best of luck!
