I've always wondered how to get the dress up on my 3 pedal cars!
    I did see the brake and clutch pedal dress up bezels on the MegaParts website. Since the original Aspen pads have a 1960's p/n (starts with a "2") I would guess these are the right size, at least they appear to be.

    BTW, it looks like the length is added to the top above the pivot. Does it make it a issue for you?

    All you have to do is look at the seller to see why it`s priced that high.

    Above the pivot, the older pedal is the same length. The extra 2" is below the pivot, which should work out perfectly (in this case).

    I went ahead and ordered the correct hardware from Mega Parts. It appears the pivot pin that goes with the pre-'72 pedal threads in to the lever arm, so in theory, all I should need to do is tap the hole. That's the theory anyways. One way or another, this pedal WILL be installed.

    It would have been easier with the NOS Aspen pedal in the link but besides the price, where would the fun be in that?

    Ok, I was looking at it wrong.

    New throttle pedal is in. Ran into another little snafu. The brake pedal bezel is for older cars and apparently they have a flat brake pedal where an F-body has an arc to it so,,,,,,,,,,,the bezel doesn't fit. I'm going over options to try and give the bezel the curve without damaging it or, trying to find the right one. Figures, there was one listed on ebay but that listing had ended. It was only $10 too. There's plenty of time (unfortunately) until spring so it's all good.

    However, with the pad and bezel just sort of sitting on the brake pedal, I think it looks a lot nicer now. Also, the longer throttle pedal worked out perfectly. It's not so awkward to use now. Ended up finishing the nylon bushing I was making and used the roll pin instead of the threaded in "correct" early B-body pin.

    Before and sort of after:

    Certainly does dress up the pedals quite nicely...
    Rich, do they have a pedal dress-up kit for a 4 speed pedal setup?

    I saw on Mega Parts the bezels for clutch/brake (and also the parking brake). I assume the square ones would fit an f-body.

    I've got the correct brake pedal bezel on the way. There is just no way that flat one (for older B-body) will fit the curved pedal. It was kind of more than I really wanted to spend on one but sometimes, it's that or nothing with F-bodies.
