the e-brake handle slides over the existing assembly once you remove the factory cover (either by putting it in a vice and prying it off with a hammer and chisel, or by cutting) though for the best fit, you need to file down the bottom part of the lip around the button 1/4" or more, else the button will only stick out by 1/4" or so, and since the handle is shorter than the stock handle, the boot will pull off whenever the brake is disengaged.
All things considered, it was fairly easy once I decided to remove the brake assembly from the car to get the factory handle off, though I cut open 3 knuckles trying to pry the damn cover off before I did that!
thanks for the compliments, cheers!
