So here is what I did I made a card board template of the inside of the pedal. It was basically a lot of trimming and test fitting to get the fit I wanted.





Next I went to my body shop of choice and asked them to cut me a peice of sheet metal based on the template.



To mount my newly made adapter what I did was simply drill a hole in the Parking brake lever and one in the template and used a sheet metal screw to mount them togeter.



I had to bend the edges of the adapter slightly upwards so that I could stretch the pedal over it.



Voila there you have an unmodified pedal cover in your truck

I'm sorry I don't understand this ? The pedal I ordered just slipped on and I glued it I didn't do no cutting or make any brackets is the Australian SRT different size ? Oh mine pedal is turned on its side you guys are facing it upwards that might be the reason

Max the Right hand drive lever may be slightly different maybe not.


I didn't want my pedal pad to be put on with the arch going horizontal and I wanted it to be removable.

You can't mount the pedal with the arch going vertical without some sort of modification. I didn't want to modify the pedal pad so I simply made myself and adapter.

So if I wanted to keep all my stuff if I were going to sell or trade in I could.

Lol, sure now you post this up after I followed the other thread on slicing off a small section. I like this method and am going to go get another one.

Ya its mine....


Alcantara.


I have had Leather wrapped steering wheels.

My last car had the wood hoop steering wheel

This truck had a half wood hoop first

Then when I got the carbon dash I decided to try the alcantara wheel.

This stuff is nice never too hot or too cold to touch.

Re: Emergency Brake Pedal

When you've done the e-brake pedal you can chrome plate the sump plug. No, wait.. that's old school... plastidip the sump plug!

The alcantara stuff wears off also. Just look around at some older Caddy CTS and you can see the worn areas where the hands are usually on the wheel.
