Parking Brake Cables- Reproductions
#1
All,

I have been looking to replace the front and rear parking/emergency brake cables with new reproduction ones. I have run into several makes that include the run of the mill to concourse correct and stainless steel.

Can anybody comment on any purchases?

+10. I've NEVER heard any negative feedback about Don from ANYONE. And I, personally, can attest to the great quality of the parts that I've purchased from him, as well as the excellent customer service.

Inline tube. Nice products, nice prices... s-l-o-w service. It took almost 3.5 weeks to get the full set of brake & fuel lines from them. All the fittings and hardware kits were great.

But had I known better how the brake lines actually fit into the car (i.e. done them BEFORE I installed the engine, tranny, & rear axle), they wouldn't have gotten bent all to Hell during my installation process (let that be a lesson to all who read this).

My only other complaint is that every flare fitting leaked after I know for a fact that I'd installed them 'normally.' I literally had to go around and crank-down the ever-livin' sh!t out of each and every one of them. I would've expected that from the stainless lines (as stainless is harder to seal than regular lines), but I remember ordering the standard lines.

The only reason I don't do more with Don is simply because of logistics. He's in Ohio and I'm in southern Nevada. He's a stand up guy!

I can understand that. Shipping costs money, for sure.

Hello Eric,

I looked thorough your pictures this morning and I am still amazed at what you have done. There is one thing that you can say, You sure know the inside and out of this Mustang! I wish I were closer to your location, love to see your Mustang in person!

I bought a front cable and idler from Don at OMS, and it fit perfectly. The PO had already installed the rear cable, so I have no idea where it came from.
