On my TR6 I used about 12-18 inches of an old bicycle brake cable.   
Run it through a small hold into the passenger footwell. Put the cut  
end through the same hold as the existing cable and the end with the  
round piece of metal on the end of the bike cable in the passenger  
footwell. Cheap, simple, not obtrusive, and can be opened easily by  
hand or a pair of pliers pulling the cable.
