my insurance company sprang a surprise on me towards the tail end of last year i wanted to share with people. seems they are sending out periodic requests to their customers with older vehicles to get them to have their vehicles safety inspected and then have the form sent to them. the kicker is the inspectors had to be a legitimate businesses and not your friend ! had to be signed and everything. this was to my dismay because i had several issues that was going to cost $$$$$$$$ ! i have heard that more and more insurance companies are requesting this. well anyways i didnt get mine done and i havent heard anything yet. i did get my vehicle checked out to find out some stuff and i found out i have no e-brake. the former owner ripped out almost the entire system ! anyone know how hard of a job this would be to replace ? could the average back yard mechanic do it ? all the way to the levers in the rear ? are there safety issues ? the garage i went to said it was going to cost like 300 bucks ! i found cables for reasonable at autozone. any and all info is appreciated. thanks. darrenolander galva,il. 1979chevycheyenneblazer 350/350 gettin'down on all fours, 4 a'little x4 play !
