    Yeah, they are definitely on the list. Interestingly, the later model bushings are $5 a pop, versus $0.95 for the earlier pedals. Not sure what gives there...Sure, the size may be different, but not $4 worth of plastic (per bushing!) different...

    They probably still use them therefore the price is kept at a stupid level

    Got the pedals in today! That one hurt the wallet...(common theme with this swap, hah).

    Turned this rusty mess:

    Into this, almost ready for powdercoating (just a little more prep needed):

    Well, I royally screwed the pooch on the pedal box when I powdercoated it! I forgot to run over it with the propane torch to burn off all the paper towel fuzzies from cleaning it, so it's got little "fisheyes" all over the place. Learned my lesson and remembered to burn off the rest of the parts first! Despite that, I'm happy with how everything turned out, and after all, almost no one will ever see the pedal box again, and certainly not close enough to care about the finish quality! The rest of the parts turned out great though!

    Without further ado:

    More various pictures. You can see an auto vs manual pedal box. The brake box is identical, they just spot welded an addition for the clutch pedal. Plus, you can see the shitiness from the paper towel fuzz! :Angry:

    Thanks! I'm pretty happy with it, despite the screw up on the main pedal box.
