deadpedal - foot rest

I installed a dead-pedal/foot rest in my 2004 GTO.

I used a 4" X 4" metal electrical box from the hardware store and a Mustang dead pedal cover. This type of box is for two regular light switches, and is used for new construction before the sheetrock goes on.

Do a Google search on:
Pedal Cover by Ford Racing - Dead Pedal #060-382 for
Mustang 94 to 04

I spray painted the box flat black and made a cardboard template. I cut a flap in the carpet near the kick panel and then removed the dense foam sound material. I drilled some screw holes in the box and then in the cover plate and it is Great for very little cost.

The only thing I would change is to move it forward an inch or two depending on your leg length. it looks almost stock.

What did the pedal cover cost? I was looking to do this MOD on my 05. Looks OEM.

I've been debating doing a dead pedal. Seems to be awfully tight with the 3 pedals already there.

Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

Yeah, I never really felt the need for a dead pedal since that area is already somewhat raised which pretty much serves the same purpose. A 4 inch high box with a pedal cover on top of that raised area would likely be higher up than where I'd want my foot to rest anyway.

I'm 6' 2" and very comfortable just resting my left foot on the floor.

I would probably go for an already made dead pedal that doesn't lift your foot so far off the floor. Here is an example of choices for $46.55 with the mounting hardware. It is a Sparco Pedal Set - Tapered Dead Pedal plus it is a Universal Fit.

2004 dead-pedal/foot rest

I got the Mustang Ford Racing pedal cover for $10 from
moss_muscle.com
https://ecommerce.mossmotors.com/mustang part number #060-382

The 4"X4" box became necessary when I cut the carpet back; there is about
2" of dense foam pad under the carpet. A 2"X4" outlet box was even with the carpet when the pad was removed. The 4" box only is about 2" above the carpet level.

Only the 04 did not have a dead pedal, the 05 and 06 have one installed stock.

I find this addition to the 04 to be worthwhile. I suppose that is why they included it as stock in the 05 and 06. However if you don't feel the need why bother to reply.
