I spaced the pedals too as I'm a bit clumsy and kept hitting the clutch by accident.

Looks good,
I used my now 9 year old son for simulator testing, when he was 7.

I cut out a polyprop support and mounted my 12v12's with heat sinks in-line with fan air flow, should get rid of the heat no problem. Have a few more posts to fit, some switching and some lights before mounting. Maplins again tomorrow... what joy!

Same Problem with the pedals here.
But I think it is the small lower part of the gas pedal.

Thanks for the kind comments everybody. MotionDave,I agree, the gas pedal design is very odd indeed. I might swap it out or modify it before inverting the pedals.

Well despite the lack of posts I have been a busy boy these past couple of months. I am where I want or think I want to be mechanically and now need to install the electrics. All the alloy chequer plate has been cut by hand using a jig-saw... well two jig saws actually as the first died half way through. I have the vibration white finger to show for my effort. I will post some cad drawings at the end with all my dims.
