I have seen it done, flipped hinges with as shocks. Latch has to be relocated along with the release cable if you choose to keep the OEM latch

Wouldn't that make it a bitch to work on anything under the hood?

Depends if it can flip striaght, but if you do have it flipped I believe the front of the hood edge may have to be rolled in so it doesnt catch the front end. If it is done, you would have to take the whole hood off to get the headlight,grille etc out

almost all foreign cars have a forward tilting hood. You just learn to work from the sides.

I don't get why you want this mod. Not hating at all, but it doesn't make sense to me. Sounds like more of a PITA than anything.
