Voodoo Polished aluminum brake handle and polished aluminum brake button.

There were no pictures with the brake boot but the instructions were adequate as i did manage to get it on the brake lever. I know have a good looking threesome in everytime i drive the car and of course i can't keep my hands off of it.I now have a good looking threesome in everytime i drive the car and of course i can't keep my hands off of it.

After only having my Miata M2 for about a day i discovered that the stock shift knob was pure junk. I'm 6'1 which makes my frame on the larger side of fitting into a Miata to begin with, but the shift knob was the only tangible i disliked so i soon ordered the raved about voodoo polished aluminum shift knob and fell in love. I then figured this love affair would be far greater if a third figure were to arrive so i placed an order again through Brainstorm Performance for a Voodoo polished aluminum brake handle, polished aluminum brake button, and a leather brake boot to finish everything off. It arrived (quicker than the shift knob alone had taken, and i immediately installed it. The brake handle and and button were very easy and intuitive to place on the vehicle. The brake boot took about 20-25 minutes and turned out fairly well.

Voodoo Polished E-Brake Grip for Miata

Fantastic finish and quality. Cost $40 from Serious Auto. Easy to install. Looks great. I purchased a polished pistol grip shifter - and I do not see a finish difference that a prior post indicated.

The mating to the stock brake cover was acceptable - however - I added a leather brake handle boot and chrome button and the final product was visually stunning.

This is a direct replacement for the tawdry plastic grip that comes with your car. Made of aluminum and polished, it fits almost perfectly where the original handle was.

I say that the fit is only almost perfect as there is a small gap left between the end of the handle and the plastic sleeve that covers the lower part of the emergency brake assembly. The old unit has a spacer that fills this area and it doesn't fit the new handle. This can easily be remedied with a variety of materials...I think a small ring of neoprene will do the job: another winter project. If you can twist off your old handle and turn the included Allan key, then you too can put this on.

Unless you're anal about absolute fit, then you'll simply love what this does for the look of your car. I now have to find a buyer for my red Nova pistol grip shift knob as an aluminum Voodoo ball shifter must accompany this gorgeous piece. I only wish I'd gone this route initially. And the cost is almost non-existent compared to Momo products ( that aren't made specifically for the Miata!). If you want to improve the looks without destroying your wallet, then consider Voodoo stuff.

A nice Polished Brake Handle.

Nice looking brake handle. Only thing that bugs me is that the polished Brake handle does not match the polished voodoo shift knob, the brake handle is like a mirror, much unlike the shift knob which looks more spun than anything else.

note: no need to remove the brake button.
1) grab a towel and a pair of vice grips.
2) wrap the towel around the brake handle
3) put those vice grips to use by twisting the brake handle back and forth.
4) once it comes loose slowly pull the brake handle outwards. This requires a suprising amount of force and is almost asking for you to slam your hand into the dashboard breaking it and the dash. Be carefull and patient.
5) slip new handle on and tighten hex bolt

Warming up the brake handle with a hair dryer might prove to be helpfull.

looks sharp next to some other chrome goodies. I am still awaiting the brake button, but it should be a good match.

Bought at Performance Buyers club for 49.95, a lot for a handle, but it looks damn nice.

...you could even comb your hair in it if you are picking up your date and the wind has done a number on your hair.
