i am getting ready to do the same, i'm not talented or tooled up enough to fab anything on my own so I am using TC Bros forwards with the G&L Pivot. Any advice is appreciated.

maybe I cant see the whole deal but my first thought is why not stagger bend the main rod and go from the bottom under the case cover instead of going over the top and have to make 4 other linkage rods? you could make one swtich over at the rear and when you push down it will push the main rod back bringing the second forward applying the brake ...Like I said it is hard to tell exactly what clearance you have but just a thought....

thats pretty much exactly what i did. keep it simple and it will work.

that rear brake set up looks like a real live game of mouse trap.
