Re: Project Madera: A Jimmy GT

I had originally grabbed a brake lever out of an early 2000 Range Rover. Well built with a nice handle and leather boot. My problem is the mounting location. I kept changing my center console design, and may end up going with e-stopp so I can just have a button on the dash... They did have something in the works with UPS so that the brake automatically sets when you put the vehicle in park...

I also always use the e-brake even with an automatic. I would rather have the have the pressure of the car (on an incline) on the brake, rather then the parking pawl in the automatic transmission.
