Steeda Pedal Covers installed on S197

Well, I got my Steeda pedal covers to add a little Bling to the interior. The install seemed pretty easy and straight forward.

Remove Rubber Pedal covers on Clutch and Brake

Mark the 4 holes you need on each one, drill to 3/16"

Put Billet Covers on and put 4 screws through the hole and tighten nuts on the back.

Gas, just align the pedal, mark, and drill out the plastic to about 1/8" and drive the sheet metal screws in with a srewdriver... they will cut their own threads and hold.

Great... easy enough... Wrong. These were harder and more time consuming than installing the CMCV delete plates.

First off, their bolt pattern does not fit the pedal size very well... be prepared to use a Dremel. The slope of the pedal makes it difficult to drill at best. I suggest using a small drill for a pilot hole and then step up to the 3/16"

You work in a tight space... duh.. I know... but alignment of the covers on the pedal is very difficult. I used vice grip pliers to hold them in place, drilled Pilot Holes, removed covers, and then drilled.

Takes patients to get all the screws and nuts tightened... again because of limited space.

Good news is they look good when done, not a bad mod for $50 in that aspect. It makes the pedal surface area larger and much easier to find and more comfortable for your feet.

Though, overall I give them a thumbs down because of the difficulty in fitting them on when the bolt patter left one on each pedal with a half hole that I had to dremel to fit, don't get me wrong they are not lose and definitely won't come off because they do provide nylon inserted nuts to go with it... but still... who did the R&D on these. I suggest, try a different brand if you want pedal covers.

What do you use on them? I like Eagle one Never Dull for most of my polished and plated metals... are you using a metal polish?

did the set come with a dead pedal? i see the Steedas advertised all the time as 4 in a set in a picture. but I always wondered if you get the dead pedal with the other three.

I agree they look good and feel good under you feet, but what a pain to install.

I got the 3pc set. I didn't want the dead pedal. The support that the factory install under the carpet is plenty for me as I hardly ever drive long distances in this car. I didn't want the extra piece setting over there. Just personal prefrence.
