e-brake relocation

Has anyone relocated the e-brake on a 914? I need some advice. Roll cage eliminated the left location!

The 914s that were made for rallys had the e-brake in the middle for turning help. I imagine with some tubing and steel that a new mount could be made. If you do not have the passenger seat then putting it on the right side of the tunnel with the tubes going through the firewall would work well and keep things away from the cables and fuel lines. Good luck

How did you mount the cage so it wiped out the ebrake? Pics?

Why not use the 911 early unit? I have one and it seems feasable.
