I was brought up to call it a handbrake. ?In the US it’s commonly known as an emergency brake, probably because most people drive automatics and if you’re resorting to pulling the ‘hand’ brake, it’s probably an emergency.

Anyway – I’ve never liked the stock location of the handbrake and had decided early on that I was going to mount it on the top of the transmission tunnel. ?The handle was ordered way back and it now was installed. ?Lovely.


One thing that I haven’t captured here and really should have done was that I had to weld up a new cable bracket. ?My welding skills are hardly Grade A but I was proud of the bracket I made up – it’s only a few inches in size which made the fabrication all the more tricky, but once made up, edges filed, and painted, it was functional and mounted in the tunnel.
