Hi, just finished the handbrake and linkage, and although there were times when I wondered if it was worth the time and effort to have a working brake, I am more than pleased with the result, so hear are some pictures to look at while I go and make the other side.

Hi Jeff

You are going to have a true master piece when your 88 is completed. I love the brake handle with functional release lever! 8)

Where did you find the very micro rivets you used just below the handle? I need something like that for my , yet to be made, front fender brackets on the Panther.

I'm starting to repeat my self but, beautiful work! very inspiring.

Kindest regards

Tim

Hi Tim, the rivets are 1/32, I ordered these by mistake, but they are so useful
