Hi All,

I have a leather cappucino handbrake cover with chrome button for sale - perfect for someone to upgrade their low series to the higher series.

The leather handle and chrome button are in good nick - $50

Pics to come shortly :)

Cheers,
Steve

PS, Also note that you can't buy the chrome button without the entire floor mounted handbrake assembly from Ford...even if it is still available from Ford too :shock:

Yeah - it's funny - I bought an entire floor mounted assy out of a wrecked NF or NL *just* for the chrome button as the wrecker wouldn't let it go by itself *grrr*

I already had a leathered handbrake handle done by Gary Blackman in Richmond (top work!) - and yeah considering the steering wheel, handbrake, gear shifter and door handles are things that get used everyday, I think it's more than cosmetics for getting the nicer bits :)

Cheers,
Steve

.

its only the handbrake cover - takes all of 2mins :wink: but this ones in cappa - which won't go with anything in your futura interior. you're better off waiting until you can get hands on a grey leather one...

lol the EA-ED's had the handbrake under the dash to the left of the steering column - so unless you've changed it to an EF/EL floor-mounted handbrake, def not! :lol:

:cry: ohhh, I guess I miss out then :cry:

I was really hoping it would fit coz I hate that stupid orange button in the pull handle and crappachino leather would loook so nice alongside all that s**t black plastic!

completly different - the only way would be to convert the car to a std floor-mounted handbrake - which is a big job! the only cars it will fit is EF/EL's!

I sense a disturbance in the force...nice attempt at being a subtle a*** Matt :lol: - it can be cappucino to your advantage...just means when you're done with it (internally), you don't have to wipe it down afterwards...just make sure you don't lose the chrome button --> refer to Pulp Fiction speech made by Christoper Walken regarding an 'uncomfortable piece of metal' :wink:

Well then Stevo, perhaps I will purchase it and put it in the EL coz I do get ever so fed up wiping it down all the time.

BTW, I've found a solution to said Christopher Walken problem. Just grab the ring sizing tool from the metal work room at school, run it across the back of a subby a few times, insert, remove and voila. No more uncomfortable piece of metal!
