    ...And I have no OEM parking brake lever/handle at all.... Guess it was determined that the PB wasn't necessary. Only lever I have between seats is the flap control.

    Mine’s the same. About twice a year I think about adding a parking brake. I probably will one day.

    Yes, this is the setup i have on my Tripe. I tried to adjust it once but It doesnt work. I've been focused on other things so I haven't stuck my nose under there to determine the issue. It looks simple enough. A tab (similar to a screen door tab on the closer that holds it open). My tabs don't seem to grab, but I'm suspecting the spring clip that sits next to it is installed backwards? As you said above "rigging".

    It would be pull cable from the master cylinder shafts to the dash

    Kind of like a screen door stay, the cable pulls on a bracket that has an oblong hole that the brake piston shaft goes through. When pulled, it “jams” the piston in position. When you push the brake pedals, it relieves the bracket and the pistons move freely
