So for my next project I am going to work on this winter will finally be the parking brakes. I won't be putting a parking brake handle in the console like I was originally going to do. I didn't really want to cut up my console for it and still wasn't sure I liked how it looked. So I have found a 2" stroke, 225 lbs force linear actuator that I'm going to most likely mount to my welded in subframe connector and use the Lokar cables I got. I'm still looking at other possible locations. I'll wire up a momentary rocker switch and hide it on the bottom side of my dash. This is the actuator I found. Also including a Youtube video of the exact thing I'm doing that someone did with the C2 Corvette which is where I got the idea.
Love it. E-Stopp sells their control box separately for $129. Good option and super easy to wire up. Just added it to the list, but not until after the rear brake upgrade which is a couple of cycles away!
His set up is exactly the same as the E-Stopp set up, he is just not paying full price for their actuator, that is where the savings are. Looks like you can do it for around $250-75 as opposed to $479 and still use their controller box. Their actuator is just connected to their controller box with a power and ground wire so nothing special and I would think any aftermarket one should work.
I may or may not use the controller box. The actuator has limit switches to stop itself when it's fully extended or retracted. I'm still undecided on what I want to do there. The price is largely why I'm looking into this set up and I also thought it was kind of neat.
