    Hydraulic handbrake

    Hi,

    can anyone help me, please?
    I have a vertical hydraulic handbrake to install in my car.
    How can i do it?
    I just have to plug a pipe fom the hydraulic handbrake in to each of the rear calipers?
    Will i loose braking performance?
    Thanks a lot.

    Cheers
    Helder

    Thanks Graham...
    If i put a oil reservoir on top of the handbrake cylinder, and then connect the exit pipe from the handbrake cylinder, to the rear calipers, will it work ok?
    Thanks.
