Deni – I think the handbrake cable routes are similar between the Spitfire & Herald.

So I had a look through my old build photos and hope the following helps.

Initially, I had separated the “semi circular tension assembly” from the hand brake pivot point.

As I was re-using a cut down body shell / framework combo for Project Frankenstein Hillbilly.

You can just about see the handbrake pivot point location in this photo.

But here you can see the route of the hand brake cable from the pivot point through the ‘tube’ in the tunnel.

The other end of this ‘tube’ appears on the sunny side of the tunnel, as seen in my previous post.

Not a great photo, but this shown the rear section reattached to the handbrake pivot point.

Good luck, Paul.
