There's an official aluminum pedals thread now!?


I'm thinking of starting a fuzzy dice thread. Maybe some sub threads for different colors.

This thread was not started by myslef. We were getting off topic on the metro meet thread and Ase, with his god-like powers moved it to it's own threadstarting with my post......thus...the Official Alum pedal thread......

Well, After almost 2 hours with several interruptions (kids), couple of beers,
lots of cursing Ase, lots of sweating... I'm done!!!

Quick report:
Gas pedal... the easiest. drill holes, align pedal, do the screws
Dead pedal... a little pain with the top screws.
clutch pedal... easy to drill into plastic. but holes were not aligned properly
so ended up screwing the top screws and then just making new holes.
Brake pedal... the most pain. drilling holes easy with titanium drill bit.
But this time, I did not want the issues of misaligned holes.
So, I made the 2 top holes and secured the pedal. With the pedal on, I made the bottom holes. Done.

Pics in a few...
