      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

      ps - cons or old school vans/airwalks make kickass driving shoes! great comboroni - friggen RAD


      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!

      Chap, way to bump a 2+ year old thread!?

      Thought about doing this a while back....I'd imagine it works quite well.

      Here is another option, it is an anti-slip aerosol spray..... One can could last for many reapplications if necessary. It comes in multiple colors and even clear..

      http://www.rustoleumibg.com/pr...d=132

      I havent done it yet but I am going to try it out, it should be easier to apply than tape.. not sure about the durability but its worth a shot.

      lol didnt i sell you those last year sometime? anyway had a set just like em

      I currently rock hot pink grip tape (only need it on the clutch) ive used it for like 6 months or more, and only had to change it like 2 weeks ago for the first time, and it still had plenty of grip when i got rid of the first one. wet feet no problem

      yep that was me ...used a different name then the one i have now. the powder coat job on them wasnt great correct? had a few bubbles/bulges?
      anyway they look great w/ that non skid coat. i like the tecture of it. might spray my intake w/ it

      that may be a good idea although it will only last at most a year. but grip tap is cheap so right on

      So is replacement pedal rubber, lasts longer too

      x2

      griptape is so much better than the rubber though..
      You could do like 10 sets of pedals with one sheet of Jessup..
      I found some APC Pedal covers for $5 at a local Advance
