I believe that pic is of the passenger side - The handbrake cable comes in at the top of the pic and attaches to the shoe towards the bottom.

On the sierra, I believe the cable goes in from the front and attaches to the shoe towards the back - If you were sitting looking at the passenger side drum, it would go in from the left of the drum and attach to the shoe on the right.

You can see the cables in this pic:

Thanks Eddy,

Mananage to get my rear brakes sorted, still need to shorten the handbrake cable but other than that the rear brakes are sorted.
I had to put a notch in the uprights to fit the rear flexis.

I spend a good amount of time on my pedal box,its the OBP kit car one.
I couldn't work out a good way of connecting the throttle cable, OBP weren't very helpful. In the end I completely changed it by raising the pedal and coverting it to a bottom pull arangement with the cable coming in through the lower chassis member. It has just enough pull to fully open the carbs, action is now smooth with no funny angles of the cable, very happy I got that sorted, I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.

Hi Mike,
Any photos of your body kit fitted or are you keeping this under wraps?
I'm interested as I also have an AGM bodykit.

The ones a page back from 18th Feb are as good as it gets at the minute.
I've had issues with side panels and rear tub join, but from recollection you only went for the 3 piece kit so might not have run into those.

It looks a bit knaff on its build wheels and no headlights so wanted to sort that before stunning you all with some nice shots! lol

Default Build update for April!

Well I got a day or two in the garage this month. With the weather improving and lighter nights I might get in there in the evening a bit more.

Main task was starting to tidy up the engine bay and make the bulk head panel. I've done this in two parts to give access to the pedal box.
I've installed the cooling system properly now and mounted the expansion bottle. I think the installation looks quite neet. The next step will be tidying the engine bay and scuttle wiring. Can't make my mind up where to have the fuses. Thinking of a drop down panel in the passenger footwell for the fuses and relays.

And heres the mod to the opd pedal box to convert to a bottom pull throttle cable.

No progress this weekend but I've got my NODIZ on order.
It seems to be a step up from megajolt as it has bluetooth for mapping and a funky android app, think there may be some data logging add on functionality coming to.

If you take out the cost of a EDIS 4 module it only a bit more pricey than a megajolt.

Next step sorting out some of the wiring and running her up with the NODIZ

Looking great!

Wish i had that much space in the engine pay as having loads of trouble trying to work out water pipe routes.

Dont suppose you can remember where you got that nice chrome pipe stuff from?

Trying to keep the engine bay install nice and neat with minimal bits.
Think I got all the red hoses and pipe from ASH

I've got to run the wiring round the exhaust side yet, the inlet side has the fule hose and brake lines.
