      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..

      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.

      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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?

      that may be a good idea although it will only last at most a year. but grip tap is cheap so right on [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      So is replacement pedal rubber, lasts longer too

      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

      He was mocking the OP's thread title. Rather than DIY it is DYI.

      ... its sad when you can't see the typo you know is there after it's been pointed out
      I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.
