Broken hood release cable 87 Avanti

My hood release cable is broken.  I don't see any replacements for models after '85.  Is there a suitable replacement for an 87 that will work?  The center latch pivot is in the same place as the earlier models.  Just the inside pull handle is different.

I had just purchased a Bowden cable with a nice chrome handle on the end on Amazon.  After cutting the external sheath to the correct length I used a cable "B" nut from Aircraft Spruce.  Bend the excess internal cable over (90 degrees) after the "B" nut for a safety against ever slipping.
