Greetings!
For those who wish to go with an alternative rear caliper/brake setup for their transaxle car, here's a neat little e-brake setup that's independent of the hydraulic caliper. I believe there's room on the diff housing to allow for the extra bracketry.
Mechanical Parking Brake Calipers
I'm on the fence about keeping my Verde, and if I do, I may upgrade the brakes especially at the back to replace the often troublesome rear calipers.

Those are very cool and thanks for sharing.

Not sure what's "troublesome" about the rear brakes though. I have them on my Milano and my race car, I think if they are properly rebuilt they work fine. On my Milano I've rebuilt them once, about what I would expect from any 28 year old caliper.

Maybe it's personal bias..... my GTV6's gave me fits no matter what I tried and my current Milano's rear calipers are sticking and binding. And they like to spit the e-brake cable out of their retainers at the tops of the levers. Even with the slots facing downwards. Mainly though, a suggestion for those going with a different caliper. This aftermarket setup will allow more flexibility in choice of caliper.
