    Anyone know anything about custom pedals? Be nice to have some with a bit of slip resistance. Looking for any reccomendations from someone who has some.

    You aint gonna slip off the old-school style:thumbsup: You can find them at any junkyard. The go-pedal fits our American feet way better than that lil floater thet give you:D the floor-hinged ones were designed to provide you with a better heel-toe "feel" for control which is why you'll find BMW, Mercedes, Porsche etc. installing them in new cars now!

    But I`m probably the same size as the guy who designed it! Haaha! That looks good. You`re the guy who has his dad`s old pedal in there, am I right? Good for you!

    I tlooks like it might be drilled through the floor mat? Did you cut the mat or what?

    I had to drill through the floor pan, installed the bearingbolts (I applied windshield sealant for total protection) and yes the bearing ends that pop into the bottom of the pedal come up through the carpet to which I answered with a rubber dress brace. I know it sounds like a lot but I've seen worse. I'm pretty proud of it:)

    Very unique. I was thinkin more along the line of those aluminum (spell that twice) machined beauties though. Curious about the fastening. I had a van (`76 GM Vandura short wheel base panel van aka shaggin wagon) with the `Big Foot` pedal and it fell off all the time! The stock pedals are fine most of the time but that machined look appeals to me. Worried about metal pedals in cold environment too.
