I got brackets to install my 300z e-brake lines which I haven't done yet. Anybody know what size bolt I should use to mount the bracket to the frame? It's the same as the stock e-brake line bolts right? Anybody know what size they are? Thanks in advance. As soon as someone tells me I'll get it hooked up and tell you if those porterfield e-brake shoes are amazing or not lol.

Stock bracket uses 10mm bolts iirc.

I had Bardabe fab up some brackets for me. Still using the same 10mm bolts.

No issues.

10mm with a 1.25 pitch right? About how long are they? Like 15mm long right?

Ok I finally got the e-brake bracket on. All you need is four 6mm (M6) by 1.0 pitch bolt - I used 20mm long ones. Make sure you use a lock washer and then a flat washer underneath contacting the bracket otherwise it won't fit perfectly. Then I just tightened the e-brake handle adjustment down til it was 7-8 clicks. Worked like a charm ;). Also I recommend if you get a set of brackets that they have the a hole for the nub to lock the cable in place in the rear by the diff and a welded nub on the front of the bracket so the bracket itself doesn't rotate where it's attached to the frame. Also if you make your own same deal with bolts just tap the hole you drilled to 6mmx1.0 patch. By the way my porterfield e-brake shoes are amazing. I love having a drum e-brake ;).
