Has anyone gotten rid of the pedal and mouted something in/ near the console, between the seats successfully? I've seen some "kits" but they are for of a race purpose, they're ugly *** hell. Should i just leave it be and get used to the pedal or what?
Edit: Here's the one i found. I was thinking i could just have it come up through the console but it will be on the wrong side
I've never had a problem using the pedal type e-brake in my GM cars. If you REALLY don't like that (which surprises me because most people have stronger legs than arms) then consider an under-dash style T-handle e-brake like that used on the early Mustangs.
