Trick Pedal Assy

I'm at the point of making up the brake lines and finishing the brake system. One problem though, the stock pedal assy looks like sh*t and locating a sportier version that will bolt on has turned up empty. So I've decided to make my own(unless someone knows of a place that makes a sportier set that bolts on). What I need from everyone is some ideas that I can incorporate into the stock mounting bracket. I'm going to retain the same mounting and linkage design its the pedals and arms that I plan on changing.

I've got kind of an idea(not in written stone yet) of what I'm going to do but I'd like to see what thoughts everyone has for a different design on the pedals and arms. So post some pics and lets see what you got or what you like. Maybe I can make it work.

Later

Only idea I have is make something that bolts to the stock location, and bolts to the fiberglass tub in front of the pedals for support. No sketches or anything, just an off-the-top-of-my-head thought.

You're pretty good as a fabricator, Brett. If you're going to retain the stock linkage and pedal bushings, fabbing your own set of arms and pedals should be a snap. The only aftermarket stuff that I know of is partially hydraulic - only the throttle retains the cable:

This is what I was thinking of doing with the arms and pedals. The brake pedal would only have to be slightly modified but the clutch would have to be made from scratch. No biggie and I haven't figured what I was going to do with the gas pedal I guess just make it like the rest.
Oh by the way its a type 1 pedal assy that I'm modifing

You could easily cut the stock arms short, then weld whatever you wanted to onto them. There's not a lot of foot space, so keep that in mind!

If I did that I think it would look like it was mickey moused together. If I cann't make it look half way decent I'll stay with the stock pedal assy

Maybe I should put the body back on the pan before I do this to make sure everything fiits

Thanks
