Has anyone got any pics of this as a finished product fitted to a leaf sprung hilux? Have you used the original brake cables etc?

had clearance problems with mine & had to get new cables made up as the standard hilux cable pulls in the wrong direction for the mr2 calipers.

here's the thread from when i did it.
just haven't added the photo's of how i cut and re-welded the hand brake lever so it clears the leaf. and used a surf hand brake lever to go from a single cable to two cables (one to each brake). hope this helps

so got some callipers from an aw11 mr2 (10 bucks on trademe :D ). they look fairly identical to the sw20 ones. Are the 78 series disks going to fit in there? Or should i grab some ln65 discs? Also, Going to put a proper handbrake on the floor. Will any old handle do? I see bulletproof used a landcruiser handbrake lever. People have any prefernces? Oh and any old equalizer does the trick for the handbrake cables?
