A few
There will be space to close the hood.
I have a tender connector coming out at the cowl between the hood hinge and the weatherstrip.

So has anyone actually used the 12V outlet under the glove box to hook up a battery tender?

Tech at local dealer says the 12V ports are switched off unless the ignition is ON, which means they can't be used for battery tender hookup. I also can't find a place to route the battery tender pigtails out of the battery compartment, which means the lid has to be off when the BT is hooked up, making it suboptimal to leave the pigtails permanently in place.
