It took a lot of muscle and push power to get those holes in...also make certain you use the right bit first time out. One of my holes I had to end up boring it out b/c the first bit I used was too small...I ended up having to go with a slightly larger nut/bolt combo on that one hole b/c I had messed up the whole...but I covered my ass and you'd never know looking at it...

just TAKE your time...some DIYs say 45mins for the pedals, but shoot for 90 and make sure you measure, check, re-check, and have all the necessary tools. Also -- get a comfy car towel, or a creeper to sit on, as you will be wracking your arms/shoulders under the steering wheel for a good long time...

I love the look, definitely worth the hassle...
