Model A parking brake mount...

Since the shop is currently without a customer vehicle, I figured I would take this time to try and make some progress on the Model A truck.

With the Model A to T5 conversions that I have been doing, several people have asked for a parking brake handle mount.  Since I was planning to running one on my Model A, this worked out to be the perfect time to do something about it.

After several revisions out of cardboard, I was able to 3d-print something that looked like it would work.

This placed the handle further back and toward the passenger side about an 1-1/2". 

After several hours of programming and whittling, I have several that are almost complete.

I will probably make the next revision out of laser cut plate and weld it together...that seems a bit more efficient...
