Had a fun few hours today removing the centre console and the old rubber gaiter (ripped and very dirty) before installing Swine Eleven reboot and new Nine Eleven Outlaw shaft and 917 style knob (wenge & dark oak combo).

Quite a big job for the likes of me but very happy with the result and the chance to freshen up the interior a wee bit

Cheers! Really happy with it and it feels very nice to use.

Think Tequipment handbrakes are unavailable now and crazy money on ebay.

Will probably have the existing lever retrimmed in black leather whenever I get round to phase two of the retrimming work I have in mind. Possibly with a rennline e-brake handle.

Not sure about the wooden knob but really like the look of the shaft and rubber gaiter. Much sportier.

I would just buy a new Chestnut brown handbrake in leather for £300, the 2S plastic on the knobs and levers is awful!

True on the plastic - horrible

New handbrake from OPC presumably?

Thats the same swineeleven reboot which fits perfectly. Looks good and would work really well with grey/black IMO Thumb
