Slippery pedals are 1000% easier to drive with IMO.

When I drove my uncle's dune buggy with worn out skate shoes it was orgasmic. Close throw gearbox and metal pedals with no grip on them and about 1" of space between the brake and the gas.

Looks great. Those are the same pedals I have just blue instead of silver. The carbon fiber part wont last long they will end up coming off after a while but I like the way they look without the carbon fiber a lot better anyway.

thanks mikey!

im trying to convince my mom to hand me another 250 of that insurance check for a spiffy rollpan, but i think it may take awhile.

the interior is going to be painted this weekend if i get around to it.

I wouldn't worry too much about a roll pan unless your rear bumper is messed up.

I don't generally like rollpans on trucks if they aren't slammed.

put in some corner bulbs that appear almost black light during the day but are a sick blue at night. this was with the hazards on and the purple discs are just a photo bug from a cellphone camera

and i want a rollpan because it looks so clean!

Hey, if you're going to do a rollpan, get one from Grant Kustoms. You pay a little more, but they're hand made and top notch quality. I had one on my B2200.
