One of our talented OnlineMetals team members recently constructed a custom brake pedal and dead pedal for his Honda S2000, and is kindly sharing his tips on how-to Do-It-Yourself!
Pro Tip: Adding an extension to the brake pedal puts it closer to the accelerator allowing the driver to easily rev match while down-shifting during braking into a corner.
- Material — Aluminum 6061 Sheet, size .19″ (Small piece, as close to size of desired finished pedal as possible to reduce shaping effort.)
- Process — Shape your small piece of 6061 Sheet, ensuring that the corners are smoothed to eliminate snagging. Add traction capability by drilling several holes in the surface, and running a sander across the face for texture.
- Installation — Rivet pedal extension onto existing pedal, and rivet dead pedal into floor board.
- Enjoy responsibly!!!
(Thanks for the great tip Brad!)
