  • Can someone tell me how you open the new Challengers or Demon Hoods?

    I have never seen the engine because I can't get the hood to open.
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

    In the past, I’ve opened hoods with folded paper. A very thin knife would also work, I believe.

      I have seen them open on eBay but can't get it open. I just got four of them in the mail and none open. Bought a gray one a while back and I thought well maybe it's this certain one.

          Just like now, the keys are gone, and here comes the Fob. BTW they don't make Fobs like they did the keys. If it doesn't work neither does the car.

            Have you received your Challengers and Demons yet?

              A very sharp knife with lots of caution or try a piece of paper. I had a little effort into getting mine open. Unsure if the possibility of damaging the paint in the process is really worth it unless you display models with the hoods up.

                I like to take a picture of them with the hood open to show them here. I guess I will pass.

                    It could be they are painted shut. In this case be very carefull if you try to open them because you can have paint damage.

                        A small suction cup might work, but those hood scoops might be a problem.

                          Old Timer and Crafty I finally found out a trick to make it work. Thanks, guys.

                            I have always used the tip of a used X`acto blade or the tip of a dulled single edge razor blade. Carefully stick it in the space at the end of the hood and pry them open. Always worked for me with no damage.

                              I use a toothpick. Preferably, the flat kind that is in the handle of most Swiss Army Knives (which I never use as intended).
