You can open it by reaching up under the rear edges of the hood through the front of the door openings. There is a special tool made for it but it can be done with a long screwdriver. Here is the tool and instructions; http://www.mamotorworks.com/corvette-c4-hood-opening-tool+1984+1996-1-66-948.html Amazon also has it for $5 less also check this post lots of good info http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c4-tech-performance/2649494-88-hood-will-not-open.html

By the way, check your cables don't go near your battery, mine corroded just touching the battery and the cables were burned by the acid clean through....
