My guess is that the other end of the cable goes to an adjusting knob so he can adjust the brake bias from the driver's seat on the fly. Just a guess.

I recognize the brake and pedal combination, but what is the make of the accelerator pedal?

Is your trans/engine mount bracket made by you? Is that tied into the body? It appears that you have 2 tabs that go upward.

Verrry nice.:agree:

Hey, we have the same front calipers! What made you decide to use Wilwood over a European brand? I'm sure Wilwood must be harder to come by there than here?

Wilwood are getting very popular over here, very cheap compared to the competition and their catalogue lends itself to helping you out with bespoke set-ups with lots of dimensions available

It does take a lot of the pain out of do-it-yourself. I just wondered how easy it was to get standard fittings and tubing on the continent.
