I have the 11.25 brake conversion and my E brake cables are stretched to the limit. I was wondering if anyone had a source for longer E brake cables. I did a search but only found folks wanting longer cables but no solutions. Anyone no of a place to get some made up?

Thanks,
Woody

How much longer do you need. If its only 1" then you might be able to do something similar to what I do with my 13" kit.

Thanks for the idea. I had no idea you had such a nice line of products.

I emailed the Fiero store to see if they would make up longer sets. I was in contact with Rodney but he won't be able to do this because of the quantity he would have to order. He probable didn't see the potential sales and for that I can't blame him. It would seem just making them all a few inches longer would be good for stock and modified brakes and could be used for either.

Try these guys.

I've dealt with them and similar companies for aerospace and ground support stuff (aircraft control cables, flight simulator stuff, etc), but never for one-off stuff.

Post back if you find anything interesting.
