      Well, that could be true.
      Here's why i dont agree
      1. Anything is better than the metal pedals themselves.
      2. I'm missing my rubber clutch and brake pedals
      3. I'm to cheap to buy new ones
      4. Anything is better than the metal pedals themselves.
      Haha

      this intrests me because i used to skate when i was younger and i collect 80's skateboards now.. i was thinking of expanding this idea (who cares if you redo it once a year? really? its friggen CHEAP) to include using some old-school skateboarding stickers - or maybe a thrasher sticker cut into 3 peices - with CLEAR griptape on it... duhno..
      anyway - my wife and i are totally old school skaters, and we [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      ps - cons or old school vans/airwalks make kickass driving shoes! great comboroni - friggen RAD

      Airwalks are nice to skate and drive in but I still perfer my Chuck Taylor's over everything.
      I'll have to try this. I've got a roll of the clear stuff laying around my house somewhere.

      That would be sweet, I would however go with a phat a$$ Indy sticker though. place the iron cross on the brake pedal and work from there.
      p.s.s. cons are not worth the money they charge now days. But they are O.G.

      I definitely go for an Audi TT pedal set. At the dealer in the Netherlands about 25 euro! Fits perfect!
