I have seen the DWC dead pedal kit, but I also remember seeing a dead pedal attached to the vertical tube in the front left sde of the drivers footbox. Does anybody make this or was it a custom fabrication?
Was this the one that you might be thinking of? I made this for my MarkIII. The pictures are of a prototype that I didn't like. The follow up piece came out pretty good. The final version is a piece of pipe split in 1/2 then standoffs welded to it along with the foot pad. The brace is at an angle in the car and the footpad is aligned vertical with the rest of the pedals. It is held in with one bolt so it is real easy to install.
I made up a couple of these and gave a copy to Mike Forte. I don't know if he has had time to start producing them yet. If I ever get my car on the road I might start fabbing up some more of these or else make another copy to get to one of the vendors here.
I fabbed one. Not hard. Used a piece of 3/8" thick aluminum and cut out long holes on the back side so I could easily adjust its position. Bolted this to a long piece that is bolted to the footbox tubes. Here are a couple of pics...
