How To Fabricate Parking Brake Cables #FairmontProject

This was one of my favorite parts of the #FairmontProject so far, fabricating the parking brake cables. It may not seem glamours, but when you build a car from scratch, everything that you put into it becomes special. Especially if it’s a useful think like a parking brake.

When I purchased my 5 lug conversion kit and brake kit, it came with a set of parking brake cables that were suppose to work with the new brakes. Thing is it was set up for a fox body mustang, not a Fairmont. I had to get a little creative if I wanted a parking brake.

Please don’t be too hard on me about my welds in this video. I was still learning. I was also having some issues with the welder that I mention in the video. I leave this kind of thing in my videos because I know it’s the type of thing you might run into with your projects as well. I may not look as good as a result, but at least you’ll have good information on how to handle the same issues if you run into them.
