Assuming a pretty standard Rover/MGF caliper is in use, the handbrake is adjusted inside the cabin under the fibre glass cover.

You can just see the adjuster nut behind the handbrake lever in the attached image <NOTE: Not my picture, one from an Internet Build site - can't remember whos now.>

No worries Ian.

I stripped tattered fabric from the two A-pillar trims and started on the passenger side door card.

Suffice to say I'm not enjoying trying to get old fabric glue off the fibreglass panels - not sure what's the most effective, white spirit, paint thinners, scraping with a Stanley knife blade or sanding with sandpaper.

New tyres on Monday !!
