Hi I'm currently building the above mentioned kit car and I've drawn a blank on where to correctly mount the handbrake switch supplied with the kit if anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated TIA

As in the switch that triggers the warning light?
Anywhere that make the switch come on when the hand brake is pulled.

Ok mate cheers I'd thought as much there just isn't any info on the mounting of the switch to the chassis and the switch to the handbrake itself I've got the hand brake installed and set up so the next step is to attach the switch I'll have a tinker with it tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.

Some time back, but I used a Sierra handbrake lever on my MK Indy. From memory the switch was already attached to the Sierra handbrake, it simply switched when you lifted the handbrake lever.

Post some pictures up of what you have (brake, switch and chassis area).

I might be being stupid here but it won't let me attach photos ? Says it needs a website but they are on my phone?

You should be able to upload them here - however as modern phone pics are quite hi res you might need to resize them, (most phones have a built in app for this, or you can down load one)

Yeah I've uploaded 3 photos, two of the installed handbrake and one of the switch.

Best to re-size photos before you upload them (I usually re-size to 800 pixels wide). If you then look at the uploaded photo this forum then gives you link text to copy and paste into your post to include the photo in your post.
