In my search for a dead pedal for my '04 M6, I peeled back the carpeting to look for some mounting points.
Realizing that there is 'nothing' on the left side, other than a large hole, and there are a few electronics modules hanging there...
I looked to the floor.
There is an angled panel that goes from the floor to the fire wall.
I figured a bracket could be mounted there.
But, I did not want to put holes in the carpetting if I did not have to.
To make the long story short(er).
I realized that a lot of cars, most recently, my '95 Taurus SHO had no formal dead pedal, but did have the floor raised to the left of the clutch.
So why not do the same ?
I looked back in my garage and saw some 2x4s and my radial arm saw...
I cut a 9" piece of 2x4.
I trimmed it to 'follow the curve; of the floor/firewall. Standing it up on end.
Then, I placed it UNDER the carpetting, along the left wall.
I put the trim back, and low and behold.
I have a dead pedal that is invisible to the eye, and yet is solid, since it is wedged between my foot and the floor.
I seems comfortable now. Taller folk can trim a 1/2" or so off the edge.
I will report back in a week of driving to confirm its comfort and usefullness.
And, if the '05 GTO comes out with a 'real' dead pedal that will fit our cars, all I will have to do us pull the carpet back and take out my 2x4 !
