My friend wants to turn his 3 seater ute into a 2 seater , and put the column shift on the floor as well as move the handbrake from beside the seat into the centre , like a sedan.

Can the parkbrake be easily moved to this position ( he is aware that he'll need a sedan cable as the ute is different )

The drivers side handbrake has an extension cable and a lever mounted in the centre handbrake hole, just remove them and replace the handbrake assembly with a centre sedan one and the jobs done! Don't replace the ute cable it's fine, the centre hole on the ute will be open on the bottom compared to the standard centre mount handbrake, but this does not cause any problems. You'll have to rewire the handbrake light also.
