so trying to figure out the emergency cable and brake lines ..

first working on the emerg. cable . My final outcome .. is to have the stock cable hook up to a short extension .. heres the direction i'm going ...

I first found some 3/16 cable .. and fittings and such

with an idea in mind , I found a bolt to cut for cable retainers .

I drilled out the center of the bolt , and then cut it in to pieces ...

then " V " grooved to top , an slid the cable up threw the center .. and welded

and "loosly" hooked up !

I checked with the GM dealer today also on the price of the return springs $50 bone each , and the secondary spring leavers .. only avaliable with the calipers .. yeah right :P so I decided to make my own ..

made a template for the bracket , and started cutting and drilling ....
