About 20 years back I fabricated a cable from wire rope slightly
heavier than stock. I used the threaded adjustment segment from the
original broken cable, and clamps to secure the wire to the
adjustment segment. The under-dash trunion was also fabricated from
a screw and section of threaded sleeve, with some judicial grinding
and cutting etc.
This was to be a stopgap until I could pick up another e-brake
cable. It ended up being backburnered... and is still on the car
('65 ragtop) and still working.
