Stock pedal bracket integration?

The cab on my 89 pickup is so rotted it is falling off, so I'm deleting it and replacing it with a basic cage, sorta kinda F-toy style.

I searched, but my computer skills suck, and since it's tuesday and all...

I'm looking for pictures of the factory toyota pedals and brackets integrated into homemade firewalls/rollcages. Mainly the clutch/brake pedal bracket, but bonus if your using the stock gas pedal as well.

I'm curious as to what materials were used, and how much space it takes up. I'm also interested in what everyone is doing for "pedal boxs", for lack of a better term for the sheetmetal surrounding the pedal area.

How high off of the floor are your pedals mounted? Do you feel like they could stand to be a little higher or lower?

Feel free to post pics or flame away, or post some links to threads my incompetent ass couldn't find. I know this is kinda basic, but I also know if I screw this up driving it won't be very comfortable.

Most every F-Toy build thread will have at least one picture of thier pedal bracket. Here is a picture of mine. Its all stock just trimmed to fit the tubing and reinforced it where neaded. I also cut about 3" of the pedals.[IMG][/IMG]

Ricks design is sick, I want to make something like that and ditch what's left of the bent/rusty stock bracket.

Is 1/8" plate heavy duty enough for that design?

And anyone wouldn't happen to know what size tubing I'll need to make sleeves for the pivot bolts?

I appreciate the ideas guys. I need all the motivation I can get, cause I'm a long way off of having a running truck again.



It now has dual trans halfway installed, and still needs about everything else.

Umm..needs more triangulation?
I sincerely hope you have more bracing planned from the lower back to the upper top. It looks like it would fold back on you with a hard hit to the "windshield" area.

Do you have a build thread in the Pickup and 4-Runner section? This isn't really an FToy; I'd respectfully suggest 1) delete the pic and leave this thread about pedal brackets and/or 2) start a build thread in the Pickup section.

....unless you want to grab a chassis; we'd all love to see the first completed IFS FToy!
