Default hood hinge relocation ?

I was wondering what the kits that make the hood hinged in the front so it opens "backwards" if you will (like a corvette) or what pieces would need to be purchased in order to do the following

Here is an example:


Another (even cooler in my opinion) way I have seen this done is like the below:

Here's one place. I'll keep looking.

There was a guy called Magic Pinapple but I don't know if he's still doing the kits. Here's is email:

Thanks Did you find anything about the second type that I mentioned? I've spent quite a while searching with no luck

That's the kind Magic Pineapple used to do and if you look carefully at the Cruiser Motorsports picture, it looks like it doesn't tilt from the very tip but comes down the front like the one your looking for.

No I don't. he used to go to many of the bigger PT Cruiser shows and do the hoods right there at the show but I never inquired about the price.
