Pedals are sweet dude! A friend of mine just got done building some pedals, and they are super cool. Thought I'd share his....I have no pictures, but I'll decribe them. He took a small block of stainless, grinded it down until he got the shape of the pedal he wanted, drilled about 9 holes into the middle of the pedal, then took some stainless tubing that he had, put them into the holes, then cut them where they were barely coming out of the pedal, then cut the ends of the tubes and frayed or expanded the ends of the tubing out, put the tubing back into the pedal, welded them in on the backside, now he has pedals that are hard to even try sliding your foot off of....super cool idea. I wish I had a picture to show you :(

So my clean shop is Ken Porter's enclosed trailer currently housing Pat Freil's pro gas Ghia. I need to make this pan a roller as soon as I can so I can get it into my garage. Still need to paint the 2" beam I bought years ago. Had to clearance the shock towers. I didn't want it to wedge fit the body. All the rest of the pan components are painted and ready to go... except the four caliper brackets. They'll need some massaging, then paint.

Cutting into the shock towers for body clearance. It's just a 2" beam but it rubs. ](*,)

Done.

Quickie update on this build...
The rear end is now completely assembled (although in these pics the axles & CVs aren't installed). The beam & trailing arms need to be painted so the front end can go together and I can roll it out of the trailer. I've slowed down some on this one since I'm trying to get the notchback roadworthy for BugO & the Classic...

Finalizing this rolling pan, finally.. Just a couple things left to do. Ground strap, half ass alignment, trans strap, spacers for e-brake cables, trim front studs and pop the bead on one rim thats not holding air.. and use some type of schmutzy glue to help seal the bead. I plan on bringing this thing home on Saturday and storing it in my garage wile we finish the notch and bodywork the bug shell. I'll post pics once the pan is out of the trailer and the motor is "installed".

I love this motor! So badass.. Decided to pull the trigger on some Pauter 1.4s. The rockers I had in it were ok I guess, but those will now go onto the notch motor.

Well she won't be living in my garage just yet. Got the rockers all dialed in and ran it on the test stand; BUENO! \:D/ Went to trim the front wheel studs and saw that the Cosmic rim wasn't seating all the way onto the rotor... :-k :-k Took a closer look and the "snout" on the rotor, which I presume is sort of like a hub-centric deal to hold a stock wheel in place while you line up the lug bolts..? Anyway, that was interfering with the rim. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) So off came the rotors and down to the machine shop to have the snout machined down.. UGH! Some things you just can't catch until its time to put shit together I guess...

Here's a quick vid of the engine being ran one more time with the new rockers. Its like music :-({|= :-({|= :-({|=

This one is sitting pretty in my garage at home now. Complete rolling pan front to back. Time to put this project on hold and concentrate on my notchback. I do need to roll it back out and take some detailed pics with a real camera.

Christmas came late for me! Since the 48 IDFs were taken from this project and given to the notch, I had to step up to the big man shit. \:D/

This project is still on back burner status. Although I need to get these carbs dialed in and on the motor so I can hear them rip that 2387! Jaycee shorty manifolds & stacks will round them out.
