Pedals, Throttle and Wiring

Pedals, Wiring and ordering – oh my!

Over the weekend, Mark and I worked on getting the Gas pedal assembly all cleaned up. For the most part, it’s done. I’m waiting on some things from McMaster, and once they’re here, we’ll be able to finish it off. I added two tabs to it for an upper pedal stop, and a lower pedal stop so that I can smash the pedal as hard as I want to and not hurt the throttle body ;-)

The throttle cable is also done – it fits nicely, and even though I’ve tarnished the finish on the intake manifold because I had to weld a bracket to it, it still looks really nice. I’m happy with it.

And the gas pedal? Well, it’s just cool :-) It looks like someone spent way too much time on it – and we did, so it’s about as nice as we both expected it to be. I’m happy with it.

I’m also in the process of wiring up the sensors on the car. I worked on it a little yesterday, but it’s still got a ways to go before it’s finished up. The ignition is well on it’s way, but the injectors need some work, and the CAS will also need some work. It’s wired, but the wiring is way too long for what I want to do with it, so it needs to be shortened. Things in general are coming along well :-)
