Re: The Snortin' bull

Do you have any pics of your parking brake install? Was curious if you used the factory rear cables? I went to their website and the prices for their stuff isn't bad.

I have not installed the frt. cable and handle yet.I did install original cables in rear,The first rear cables that I ordered from LMC are incorrectly listed,NAPA still offers the correct for pre 63. I will show the install when it comes about.
