Been outside to measure exhaust pipe , in theory this should slide inside my exhaust and just clamp it? will it give me the room for handbrake cable? might pop into local garage see if they have old flexi in there skip to try the idea before ordering e bay showing it as 16quid,

Not if its got enough bend in it the complete flexi posted b5 might be better as more flex , ether do aa small curve or make a s shape so it misses the cable clamp same size pipe just with a curve or s shape ,

or could put electric handbrake unit on like some cars have think not lol, what a pain these are when the fail and seize up and need a computer to reset them,

Going by the amount of cars that sit at traffic lights with their brake lights on, I tihnk soo many have electrinic hand brakes and they cant quite press the button, too much hard work for them.

all my cars have automatic transmission i never use the parking brake until i park. the brake lights on at traffic light lets the numpty behind me know i have stopped.

Looking nice, Is that on the Saleen? if so Did Saleen upgrade the brakes from the regular Mustang?

I think the Saleen's have 'Brenbow' brakes so this is probably for the Firebird.

Lol. All that computer work must be getting to you. What's the thread about?? My trans am. And in post 555 mentions the TA.
The caliper piston had seized wouldn't go back in so brought recon unit from rockauto.

The gear linkage parts I posted earlier had reply back from firebird cental they want 82dollars to ship 15dollars worth of parts DOH think not. Considering the caliper pads and hose with shipping was 92pounds all in dosnt make any sence might put the remaking pads in the otherside today.
