the 2 levers that open the trunk and engine lid. the cables came apart when i removed them, now i need new ones. has anyone ever found suitable replacements at autozone or kragen? they need to be about 6 feet long.
the leverset im installing is new and all black, i like it better then the chrome set.

Bicycle handbrake cable from a bike store works... just feed it through the old sheaths.

If the sheaths are gone too, Matt, Vicks, and likely some other vendors have the complete sheath+cable deal.

while at the bike shop, you can get the screw with a nut and a whole through the middle, it clamps down on the cable, so you can make a loop at the other end at the latch
