Another part of the build where the old adage Measure Twice cut ( or drill in this case) once applies.  This needs to line up just right or it either won’t be useable when driving or it will be uncomfortable.

Started with the pedal box assembly

And then removed the two brake cylinders ( front and rear) so I could access the main pedal box frame

and then aligned the box in the chassis so I could check it provided sufficient clearance for my feet ( first sit in the car 🙂

Once that was done I marked up where to drill onto the newly fitted bulkhead for the 6 securing bolts and where I will need to drill through with my hole cutter for re-fitting the brake cylinders.  After marking up drilled the 6 mounting holes and then used a hole saw to cut out the two clearances for the front and rear brake servos.

Once that was done I marked holes to drill on the feet of the pedal box brackets on the work bench and made the 5 bolt holes as needed for fitting.

The bracket was then temporarily secured to the bulkhead so I can transfer the base holes to the chassis and drill through. Once done the pedal box was secured to the chassis with the bolts through the floor.

Clutch and brake pedals were then drilled at the base to allow connection of their relevant cables.

and then finally the pedals were all fitted and the cables were attached. At the same time to complete the mounting of the pedal box the front and rear brake servos were installed on the bulkhead on the engine bay side.

** Update, finally found a better way of securing the throttle cable to the pedal which also gives me two points holding the cable in place. I also wanted something that had hex head bolts rather than screw heads as once the bodywork is on, it would be a nightmare to adjust or replace a cable.
