Dead Pedal Build

Posted on: Friday December 1, 2017

Alum dead pedal cw cardboard template

With more left over scraps of the 1/8' alum sheet I set about the build of this foot rest. With a cardboard template trimmed to profile the inside of the rocker, cowl and floor. Also allowing sufficient clearance for my foot to operate fully the clutch pedal without fouling. Transferred the cardboard template profile to the alum sheet and cut it out with an alum thin blade zip cutter. The top of the foot plate was bent with a gentle curve towards the bulkhead. The angle of the foot plate was s...

Extinguisher And Gear Lever

Short shifter old knob

After finalizing the seating positions in the car it became apparent that the 5 speed gear lever knobs current position was too far away for a comfortable reach. The present alum shift knob was only a clamp on affair, which I was not to keen on for spirited driving. The T5 stick had already been modified with more crank towards the driver, away from the dash, but now it needed a straight 4" extension.

Passenger Seat Install (mock Up)

Posted on: Wednesday November 29, 2017

Passenger side seat brackets

The previous owner had supplied an older non-reclining Cobra racing seat with the purchase of the car. This I have modified to fit in the passenger side, utilizing the existing 1/4" UNC welded standard seat mounting nuts. The slider is mounted to the seat but I had to fabricate a pair of angle/zee shaped brackets to mount sliders and adapt to floor fixings. Again this elevates the seat above the standard position but should be entirely functional for a nimble person to get in.

New Drivers Seat Fitted, (mock Up)

Posted on: Wednesday November 29, 2017

Modified runners spacers driver s seat

So my drivers seat has now taken the form of a racing seat Type R from Speed Daddy. Originally a reclining passenger seat with sliders. It is a tight fit but with the slider mounts repositioned and spacers added with long 5/16 bolts to go thru' the floor. Large fender washers have been used either side of the floor pan to help strengthen the floor from pull thru' of the bolts. The seating position is higher than stock but very comfortable.
