Where did you source the handbrake handle? I've been looking for one like that without luck.

The alloy handle is from a MK II Elise. Any Lotus dealer can get them.

That's ace. You get a complete respray?
Strive for perfection in everything. (given time)
Take the best that exists & make it better. (given inclination)
If it doesn't exist, create it. (God did)
Ignore what I say. (good advice)
