I was bored today and replaced my crappy shift boot with this homemade one.

2 Things about the pedal extension:

1. How does that work in wet conditions? It seems like it would be really slippery.
2. That looks really close to the brake pedal. Close enough that if you have to slam it in a panic stop it seems like you would catch the gas.

1. I might buy some of that sticky sandpaper stuff for it.
2. It's all in the camera angle. It's only about half an inch closer to the brake. When I panic stop, I push both the brake and the clutch, so it wouldn't matter if I catch the gas pedal or not.

As cool as I thought the "hard drive gas pedal" mod would be, it doesn't seem to be very practical. The length and width are fine, but the mounting bracket underneath made it sit too high. Then I asked myself.... what would watkins do?

Here is what I came up with:
