I'd get on a drift forum, they have tons of info on hand brakes. I would think you just T-into the rear brake lines...

Check out www.demontweeks.co.uk they have a few to choose from and I believe they have instructions.

We put one in our rally car. Basically you have to tap into the rear line, the handbrake comes with it's own master cylinder and check valve so the fluid won't go into the master cylinder when you pull the handle.

I hope that helps.

Ah, very good information reillydog. I suppose I need to change the rear drums to rotors?
