    so I recently finished one of my secret projects I thought of two years ago:

    so I had to drill out holes in the bracket so I could have the smallest footprint possible:

    20140429_152304_zps6551342b.jpg

    I had to mark and drill holes in the floorpan for the lines and bolt the bracket to the floor. The bracket holes are exactly on either side of the torsion bar support rail. And it's the possition I want when I'm sitting down (luckily)

    20140429_151324_zps67d608c5.jpg

    the patch that is in place under the bracket so i can remove the carpet and the bracket stays in place

    20140429_151359_zps21d65444.jpg

    drilled out the holes I need on the new hurst shifter handle, also had to round the bottom corners:

    20140424_223819_zpsfdcc484f.jpg

    Put it all together(sorry for taking the pic at a bad angle ):

    20140424_222859_zps6f76bcbb.jpg

    Run the brake lines so they clear the torsion bar hole in case of removal:

    And you got the worlds first Hydraulic ebrake pistol grip! Cool part now is my car will have both the 71 short shift and the 71 bench seat shifter in one car!

          That's cool Dangina. I'm looking forward to seeing the other pistol grip and rest of the interior installed

                  Just saw this when I was looking through your build thread man and gotta say it's one of the most trick things I've seen anyone come up here recently! Gonna look so badda$$

                  Congrats on the little one also!!

                    Cool project and A+ for design and implementation, but if that's intended to replace the parking brake assy it's not legal. Speaking as someone who had a CA state brake inspectors license I can surely say that the parking brake must operate independently from the service brake. But if you need help steering around tight corners........

                      Reminds me of the setup that they use on "wheelie cars" except they use two master cylinders. Left and right, rear wheel brakes. That's how they are steered down the track with the front wheels up. A hole in the floor so the driver can see where he's going...

                      I wouldn't trust it for an e-brake. Could leak down and not hold...

                      Yes this is true, but while drifting the cable could break.

                        That is cool, the coolest shit ever is secret.

                        Might have to go into mass production since you've let the cat out of the bag on this one.

                        All kidding aside, that is an awesome idea and great craftsmanship.

                        Nice

                          Some...drifting, more of the autox/road racing. Its a heavy bird to get around those corners, might as well do it in style!

                          will do! might be another couple weeks, time is short

                          never intended to replace the parking brake, I'll still have the oem manual cable operated brake.


                          lines are all done and bled, it holds solid!


                          Thanks again! he's awesome :)

                          I didn't get the "drift", that's what you're useing it for. Cool idea for sure!
                          Just clowning around when we were young, we would throw a car into a sideways slide, applying the e-brake, down shifting, having the car pointed in the opposite direction, releasing the e-brake with the gas on the floor. Fun stuff with a heavy car.
                          You'll have to shoot some video when you start test driving....
