On my 97, there is a cover, pull up on the parking brake, from the passenger seat you see a phillips head screw holding the cover. Remove it, slide the cover off.

I'd bet the difference in length is more than the amount of adjustability. So you couldn't find a gen-1 coupe cable?

Please explain on this interesting mix of parts going into your car. Whats the reason for using the 02 parking brake? Are you trying to use the entire 02 lever assembly?

no im installing a 02 center panel, but i like the 93 dashboard. never mind tho, i got it perfectly, just some interior mods to have the cup holders from the 02 SC2 and the power window controls from 02. sure enough i was able to fit them in perfectly

Exactly. I'd like to see how the console mates with the lower dash.
