    I have a Toyota Mark 2 Jzx100 with an automatic transmission and plan on doing a manual gearbox conversion. My question is how would I replace the parking break with a handbrake when it is converted? I have attached a picture to show the area where there is currently no handbrake. Thanks!

    Assuming this is because there is no room for the clutch and park brake pedal?

    I would hazard a guess and say you would need a new center console, Handbrake lever and new Cables to make it into that setup.

    If there is a chance the clutch pedal would still fit and not interfere with the Park Brake pedal, i would just leave it,

    In my nissan gloria I bought a centre console from an s13 & skyline as well as a complete handbrake assembly & mount from a skyline. Completely doing away with the foot brake.

    Ok sounds great very helpful - the car is having the interior stripped as it’s going to be a drift car so not worried about the center console - would a hydro e brake be a good option to install? I guess I will need to drill through the chassis to thread the new cable to the rear brakes?
    Cheers
