umbrella handbrake there is a reason they died out ;D that will be a lot of work for the cables and mechanism but nice to see ideas out of the normal box.

It will be ok!!  split-oval cables go all the way to the front .. I will fit a line lock as well

an early chassis from the days of cutting up splits and ovals for buggy building so a lot easier than a later chassis.

Keeping yourself busy, looking at that I would have thought a big old external handbrake along side the tub would be period.
Is this going to end up a rat rod or steam punk motor.

I call it lots of things  >:(.. I picked an exhaust up from a guy and I told him the type of buggy he had in the hes garage I had not seen he's buggy before and I was spot on :-[ .. Years ago I was at volksworld 99? And in the packing lot there was a black rat and it was low step in out job not a show winner but looked Cool to me! I was talking to a guy who is a clean cut bug guy but he remember that buggy as well as it stood out in a good way.. So all I'm doing is pulling all the bits I have seen that I like and some I have not! seen and making a buggy I can park up anywhere that keeps me dry! But looks Cool and will drive ok..and I can stand! next to it and if anyone goes who built it I can go Me! ...I was going to put the hard brake a long the tunnel with a hand trigger but it would end up looking over the top..

I cut and used a part from the new rear to get me a line .. If I was just doing a cut and weld it would be easy! But I'm going to lift the rear 1" a lot of work for 1" but why not.

I`m really enjoying all this thread for the simple reason that unlike most of the build threads on here that always end up looking like a Buggy, I have absolutely no idea how this one is going to turn out

Keep up the good work mate - refreshing to see something very different  ;-)up
