Be apt if a cable from an 89 UPS/Joker van fits.
Mercedes Sprinter Van would be the modern version.

spend the extra cash and convert those to disc brakes, Drum brakes are useless..... Drum brakes went out with the Ark LOL


Alex :hey



Rear brakes don't do much of the stopping anyways so I'd rather spend the money on some "toys/gadgets" for the car instead.

Rear Discs vs. New Toys/Gadgets... New Toys/Gadgets win :)

I've found a place locally that makes e-brake cables to spec. I'll be visiting them on Monday to see what they will charge me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I've also reached another milestone! The rear assembly is now complete (minus that damn e-brake cable) and I've started to move towards the front.

The front suspension disassembly is under way and hopefully I'll soon be prepping it for paint :)

Re: The BatBerry: My 89 Batmobile controlled by my BlackBerry


Finally I have all the rust on the front end of the chassis removed.

Now it's time for some primer & paint and then front suspension reassembly. I'll also likely clean up the spindles and brakes before reinstalling them.

Well the front end paint work for the chassis is now complete!

I'll let the paint cure for a day or so before assembling the front suspension and I still need to track down a couple bolts for those upper A-arms.

Re: The BatBerry: My 89 Batmobile controlled by my BlackBerry


I've been making some progress reassembling the front end of the car now that all that crappy rust removal work is complete.

There are still a few parts that need a bit of paint, but hopefully by the end of today I'll have "most" of the front end assembly finished.

I've been working with a local company to design some cool steel machine gun doors. They are almost ready to go and the design looks awesome!

Amazing work! I don't know how you find the time to do such much, so quickly.
