Sorry for the picture size differences in my posts. I finally realized how to add story/picture/story. I figured it would look much better that way. Now moving onto the console. The console itself is the same between the automatic cars and the 4-speed cars. The difference is in the console shifter plate. Here's what we're starting with
While getting a bunch of pieces ready for same-color paint, I decided to get the rest of the 4-speed conversion done. I started with the pedals.
First, I trimmed up the brake pedal:
Then, I did the same thing to the brake pedal from a donor '65 Satellite kit I have
I shortened the brake pedal arm and made a notch for it to go into
Lastly, I attached the brake (now clutch) pedal. I wasn't too worried about how pretty the attachment point was as long as it was solid. The entire horizontal piece that the pedals swing from goes completely behind the dash. Also, I removed the bracket that the accelerator pedal is attached to as it will stand alone. It will look more realistic like that.
