    Cable

    My S/Off Cable is mounted to the Dash bar,just used a peice of Alu.and drilled a 3/8 hole for the Cable to go thru.Just make sure you can reach it when Belted in!
    Chute Cable is just a Double C/Moly Bracket welded to the Upper Funny Car cage,w.a 8"Arm for the reales Cable.You can buy a Chute Cable w/Arm,and mt.it in thw center hole so it Pivots and hook Cable w/a clevis.
    Hope that HELPS!

    My fuel shutoff is mounted to the top front halo bar, within easy reach, it's a simple mount looks a lot like a choke cable. I used to have a push pull PTO cable, mount one the down bar i hated it. The one i have you can just slap it and the fuel is off, much safer and quicker. I can post a pic. if you want to see the mounting.

    Zip.

    Not trying to steal the post, but do you guys push or pull your chute handles? I pull but I like Zippers idea of slapping at it.

    Dave i don't have a chute on the Malibu (it's not fast enough) but on my other car with the Chute, i mounted a similar Alum. handle behind the shifter, useing a choke cable, and it was a simple matter to just push it forward to release the chute, no feeling for the loop ring or T'handle or reaching overhead, never failed.

    i was sitting in the car today and was thinking about mounting the fuel shut off to the drivers door x brace it will be out of the way and easy to grab with left hand. still cant decide on t handle or lever. im leaning to the the chute on the right of shifter.
    thanks for the input
