    has anyone done this?

    has anyone fitted one of those irmscher handbrake levers?
    see here http://uploader.co.uk/images/alu_hand_brake.jpg
    just wonder how easy it was to do, and what there thoughts were.

    im thinking of fitting this with the center console and gear lever surrounds etc (all in alu)from irmscher this weekend as im about to rip the dash out to fit the top spec wiring loom from a astra gsi, so i thought as im doing this ill kill two birds with one stone and make the dash etc look a bit nicer.

    the only thing is i wanted to have the ashtray to match but they only do it in titainum so i might try and have it sprayed to match.

    Handbrake handle is a piece of p!$$ to replace.

    Pull back the handbrake gaitor to release it from the lip of the original handle.
    Depending on how strong a grip you have, either twist off or cut off (Using a stanly knife) the original black plastic handle.
    (If you are replacing the handbrake gaitor, now is the ideal time to replace it)
    Apply a layer of the black, sticky bonding agent (comes in the kit).
    Carefully slide on the new handle & align it correctly.
    Now leave the bonding to cure (at least overnight, preferably longer).
    Refit the handbrake gaitor over the lip at the end of the handle.
