Welcome To The Corvette Action Center techboy!

Can't help ya with the rims, but it sounds to me like the hood adjustment stop needs the adjustment, not the cable. Try it, it ain't hard to do. ;)

Good luck, and let us know how you do.

Welcome aboard the CAC techboy.....

Ken's right.....it's probably not your cable. As far as wheels go, if you're looking for ZR-1 style, have you tried AFS Wheels? They're reasonable priced.
As far as ground effects, try Mid-America or Ecklers. There's also a company called Vanacor's......not sure of the website address though...

Welcome Techboy,look for a alinement pin about 3/8 in diameter at the outer edge of your hood. They are threaded and have a locknut on them.They come loose and will not let the latch engage the latch pin correctly. Tighten them up that may be your problem. There is one on each side. Chuck
