Pedal Box

I took the oppor­tun­ity to fit the ped­al box today, remov­ing the ped­als and pos­i­tion­ing on the bulk­head in the drivers foot­well, the frame needs to be moun­ted as far left as pos­sible whilst leav­ing suf­fi­cient space for the car­pet at some point in the future.    I have seen no defin­it­ive meas­ure­ment of where the ped­al box should actu­ally fit so I elec­ted to fit the frame so its sits roughly 10mm below the curved ledge / hori­zont­al corner sec­tion of the engine bay.

By mark­ing and drilling the centre hole first, you can tem­por­ar­ily fit the frame in place which makes it much easi­er to mark the oth­er holes.  A point to note is that the frame is heavy, find­ing a wedge to assist prop­ping it up is help­ful – I used a break­er bar – also take the oppor­tun­ity to drill and tap the frame to mount the stain­less brake light brack­et.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fit the cyl­in­ders by mount­ing them with the sup­plied bolts and nylocs – which is achiev­able on your own – reach­ing through the hole cre­ated by the exten­ded foot­well and also into the bulk­head from the behind and using 2x 13mm span­ners.  The cable hanging from the left in the pic­ture below is the side indic­at­or which has yet to be wrapped and fixed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took the oppor­tun­ity whilst I had the ped­al box in pieces to fit the Dynamat Extreme™ acous­tic and heat insu­la­tion.   I shall fit the OBP Brake Bias Bar in a few days time when i am next in the gar­age in con­junc­tion with the bulk­head con­nect­ors, fixed and braided hoses sup­plied by Gard­ner Douglas – once she who must be obeyed, gives me a pass !
