    did a half assed mock up in 3d using tinkercad because its easier than sketchup (at the time)

    bought a bunch of stuff off alibaba and ebay

    put the frame together, mount the pedals

    dremel an actuator fitting to go over the brake pedal

    drill the angled aluminium brackets to mount the clutch master cylinder

    reused the old bracket from the original clutch master to connect the new clutch master

    then i realized the pedals arent angled enough when i put the accelerator pedal next to them (didnt take a pic but the brake pedal is sitting close to the bottom of the accelerator pedal when put together)

    thats all the progress for now, i have a few oil pressure senders, two pull clutch slave, a bunch of an3 fittings and crimped an3 brake hoses and two oil pressure gauges sitting here until i get around to mounting the pedals properly

    i havent decided if i will keep this design as the 14mm rod might not be able to take the force from braking... and i have to drill more holes to more the pedals closer to the clutch master to they angle out more....

    I have nothing to compare this to as this is totally new to me, but it looks awesome!
