That handbrake is a work of art so is your build, congrats

Those are the exact same tierods off the end of a Volvo gearlever rod. They'll last for a little while... They're definitely not made for the kind of treatment they'll be getting on the Piranha, but at least they're reasonably cheap from an aftermarket supplier.
