I thought the goblin hood was ment to hinge on the two bolts under the windshield, but someone said it was ment to be removed for access. Is anyone hinging ot as mentioned above?

Even with a quick disconnect steering wheel, I think you'll still run into interferences such as the gauge cluster and maybe even the steering column depending on how high it's raised.

Well...... I just so happen to have a pair! :)

I kept everything thinking I might re-purpose some things.
You pick up shipping, and they will be headed your way.
And just to sweeten the deal, I will throw in two rear seat back release mechanisms that could be used for latches - maybe.
I took a short movie clip showing the motion and how the hood back edge would actually move forward as it raises. But, I cannot upload a .MOV. If you want to watch it, PM me with an email address. And then an address to send them if you decide you want to try them.

Very interesting idea! Since I am not using the stock gauge cluster, and plan on having a quick disconnect steering wheel anyway, I'm not sure if I need the more elaborate hinge setup you are proposing. Also, my girlfriend says we saved those hinges. If we did, they are in my NY garage, as we are snowbirds with about 4 weeks left here in Florida.
I do like your idea with the seat latches for the front. For some reason, mine does not line up right with the dzuse fasteners.it off by a significant amount. If you could email me pictures of these latches I would appreciate it. I will pm my email address. Thanks.
