When upgrading your S13/180sx rear brakes to R33/Z32 rear brakes you will find the handbrake cables do not exactly line up to the S13/180sx chassis and handbrake lever.
The GKTECH cable conversion plate is made from laser cut 8mm thick steel and allows you to easily adapt R33/Z32 2+2 handbrake cables to your S13/180sx chassis and handbrake lever.
We allow these lines to be located via the OEM handbrake pin which is cast into the cable bracket into the bracket and also have incorporated an M8 thread in the plate to hold the cables down rather than the M6 thread used from OEM. This means you don’t have to waste time around with loose nuts on the top and fidgeting around with spanners and tools.

Cant my original lines bolt up?
No they do not, when doing a brake conversion that requires drum brakes you will find the cables do not match up to your S13/180sx OEM lever and front cable. This means you need our conversion plate that enables you to keep your OEM lever and front cable, while running the respective handbrake cables to.
Why use an M8 hole to locate the cables instead of the M6 provided by factory?
We noticed the OEM handbrake cable has the allowance for a larger bolt to be used to secure the cable, why not use something that is already there to make a better/stronger product!
Is 8mm too thick and will this cause any issues?
There are no clearance issues and considering people are constantly pulling the handbrake whilst drifting we felt the need to overcompensate an important connecting part.
Does this come with everything I need?
Yes, this kit comes with all the accesories to bolt directly up.
