Thanks HandyAndy, the handbrake is off a Honda Civic I found in a wrecking yard.
And you are also correct on the adjustable bias valve.

Old thread I know - but it's where I am now!!!

Looks like most people just drill into the chassis rails (and rivnut?) to secure their p clips?

Does the 'perforated strip' idea mentioned in The Book mean "welding on a strip of 1mm plate that you've drilled a load of holes in" - like the pic in Dogwoods post (page 1 of this thread). And do most people not bother with this approach?

Just want to make sure I weld everything necessary before painting!!!

You can also paint your chassis, and fit the strip afterwards with rivets, as Simon (Tatey) did:
