84 Spider hand brake cable replacement - assistance needed

I am in the process of replacing the 3 applicable hand brake cables, center and left and right.
What I am specifically looking for is assistance with replacing the left and right cables at point of connection with the e-brake shoes.
I have the rear tires off, brake calipers and rotors.
What are the recommended steps from there to get at the cable ends on the parking brake shoes?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks elite38868,
No I never did get any feedback, but it all worked out. Once I tackled the project, I found out the e-brake shoes needed to be replaced, so by a complete dismantle of the brakes, I figured out the steps to get them replaced.

Did you end up replacing your center and L & R rear cables too? I'm about to tackle that project soon.

Yes, I replaced all 3 cables, the main cable from the brake handle and both the L & R cables to the park brake shoes.
