    Rear disc hand brake kit?

    I know I have seen a link somewhere for a company that made an after market kit for fitting a hand brake function on rear disc brake calipers that didn't have this originally.
    The kit was real simple and made it possible to operate the calipers brake pads with a wire.
    It was not an additional caliper or something.
    Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

    cant really see how that would work.a caliper with integral handbrake has a mechanical linkage on the outside that acts on the piston.easyest option is ford granada rear calipers or somethin newer like bmw maybe.i have used granada items before and they work just fine.
