[TR] Internal Bonnet Release System for TR3/A/B?

The original inspiration of the key fob Dzus tools I spoke ofearlier  was a guy
who had an inch and a half of 1/4-inch bar stock filed on one end to fit
the Dzus and drilled on the other end to fit on a keyring.  Not fancy, but
it worked.

A guy who's been around TRs for a while took it to another level some years
ago with a small run of cast aluminum keyfob tools in the shape of a
stylized TR3 where an extension to the rear wing/overrider became the
carriage key.  There was a version that opened like a penknife, too. They
were pretty cool little items, and there are probably a few unfinished
blanks left over.  The market really isn't there to invest in tooling or
support pricing that justifies the handwork.  So the few that may still be
kicking around are probably it for now.

As a practical solution, Karl, you might want to whittle one out of bar
stock or use the Swiss Army solution proposed by Randall.
