Rear 93 Cobra brakes in 80 Capri

Hi,
I have an 80 Capri which I installed the 93 Cobra rear disks. I have everything squared away with this conversion except the parking brake cable. What do I do to connect the new setup to the old style drum cables?

Picture of the two ends you need to correct, or there is a link in the Useful Info thread that is pretty complete on axle and brake conversions. 5-Lug conversion is what it is about and they mainly talk about SN95 stuff, but your connections may be similar.

Yeah, I figured you did. I was just wondering if the E-Brake cable connections were similar to the one needed when installing SN95 rear brakes.
