    Handbrake mounting

    I am at the point of mounting my handbrake lever assembly on my AK kit. One thing that i may do is cut out a section of the fibre glass to clear the footplate of the mounting bracket, the reason being that when the body is lowered onto the chassis in theory there is a gap caused either by the sealant or foam strips which seal the body to the chassis.
    The advantage in doing so ensures the bracket has a firm base to fix onto in other words metal to metal contact. Another modification which i may investigate is to slot the fixing holes to improve lateral adjustment,once all is finalised and the brakes are working as they should be a 5 mm roll pin can be added through the bracket and into the chassis as a permanent
    fixture thus stopping any movement.
    Cutting the hole in the body in my opinion does not represent any weakening in the shell.

    I like the idea showing multiple holes in the base of the bracket to enable the bracket to move giving extra adjustment on the cable.
