yes, after the initial build (which the pictures are depicting), I added a strap between the arm and bumper to keep it from swinging out too far. re-purposed an old seat belt haha

I finally got started on my parking brake install. Since I no longer have the OEM drivetrain, the OEM handbrake system was out (it was mounted on the oem transfer case). Luckily I have those 240sx rear calipers though! I got an OEM parking brake system from a nissan 240sx and got to work. First thing I had to do was get the rear cables installed and make a custom mount to bolt them to.





This is the OEM nissan handbrake assembly...you can see there is a plate that joins both cables into 1 for the handle to pull on. I will make use of this and adapt it to a custom mounted OEM Patrol handbrake that I ordered from ebay!



Hopefully will have the handbrake complete in a few weeks or so

Project "Confuse-a-car-thief" has made some headway (adding more random levers to the interior lol). I got the handbrake assembly made and installed into the Patrol! Came out real well! Next is "plumbing" the cable to connect it back to the rear cables. I will get some more pics of it installed in the Patrol hopefully tomorrow.





I am using the OEM Patrol handbrake, custom mounted to a 1/4" thick steel plate, and I adapted the "cable pull" section of the Nissan 240SX handbrake to the Patrol handbrake. This is so I can still use the adjusting nut of the 240sx cable to tighten or loosen it up for perfect tension. Works great!

how is the hub being used for the bumper hinge holding up? i was thinking of doing that with a vw hub but after reading the bearing tends to pull apart if you don't have a cv installed to hold the bearings tight i passed on it...... your setup looks great.

hey thanks! it is holding up very well. Im not sure what you mean by a hub needing an axle installed to keep the bearing in place....its pressed into the hub. It seems to be holding up fine. now that its been on the vehicle for a while and i have been driving it around (subjecting the vehicle to vibrations, bumps, etc), it has sagged a little bit. All I have to do is lift up slightly to get it onto the "lock", so it doesnt bother me at all.

finally have some rear seats at least for now. I went to Academy sports to get some nice, padded boat seats. then I found these molded plastic ones next to them for only $9 each! Made some custom mounting brackets and bolted them in and they fit and feel great! There's also plenty of room under them still for storage of my tool/spare parts bag
