More progress. I couldn't find emergency brake cables. I was introduced to a company that custom makes them but they were expensive. I took a good look at the originals (glad I didn't trash them) and they weren't frayed and seemed to be in good shape. I hung them in the cellar and sprayed them with penetrating oil over the span of a week. They loosened up nicely and move easily. Now I'll install them. Weather is warming up and snow melted away. I got underneath the rear wheel well and marked off where the splash shield bracket should be. I'll weld in the one I fabricated soon.
