Today I finally fixed my bonnet release mechanism (been driving it without front grills). Lubed up the bonnet latch and replaced the front Bowden cable.

The new Bowden cable is not necessary if you manage to release the bonnet without yanking the Bowden cable from behind the grills. I pulled that cable to release the bonnet and that stretched the cable long enough to not catch the bonnet.

Also fitted a new dash camera ddpai M4 and hardwired a micro-usb cable

Ordered from a Taiwan company, cost me about USD90?
It is a display which comes with 2 sensors and connecting wire for oil and water temp, it also has a fan control option but I didn't bother with it.

Very nice mod! Did you use the sensors which where included with the display? (if so, that means it's not plug and play right?)
