    automobile parking brake ideas?

    does anyone have an idea on how to change a foot pedal parking brake to a hand control parking brake?

    i have a 1986 ford f250. i have good arm and hand control.

    i'd like to figure out something i can make, but something i can buy would be fine too.

    just this and a few more things and my truck will be done!

    In my new van pics thread here you will find this post from Bruce Hanson which looks like what you are looking for:

    I have some video I got from somewhere. In it this guy made some kind of cane thing with a shoe on it to push the parking brake pedal down.

    Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
