    I used the following materials to create the various pieces.

    0.020 Evergreen sheet styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals.
    0.040 Evergreen sheet styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals.
    0.080 Evergreen sheet styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals.
    0.035 Evergreen styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. rod
    0.047 Evergreen styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. rod
    0.062 Evergreen styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. rod
    1/8 o.d., 0.062 i.d. Evergreen styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. tubing
    0.060 Plastruct styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. hex rod
    0.080 Plastruct styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. hex rod

    Here are the dimension of the main parts. In addition to these, I also cut the following parts:
    1 - triangle of 0.080 styrene Firewall mounted brake and clutch pedals. to connect the brake fluid reservoir to the assembly.
    1 - 1/4 long piece of 1/8 tubing with a groove filed lengthwise.
    1 9/32 long piece of 1/8 tubing with a groove filed lengthwise.
    2 1/16 long pieces of 1/8 tubing
    1 5/32 long piece of 1/8 tubing
    1 piece of 0.047 rod with ends flattened and drilled 0.037 long enough to connect the brake pedal to the right angle bracket.
    1 piece of 0.062 rod with one end flattened and drilled 0.037 long enough to connect to the other end of the right angle bracket and go into the brake fluid reservoir.
    3 lengths of 0.035 rod long enough to make bolts with slices of 0.060 hex rod drilled at 0.037 used as nuts and bolt heads.
    2 lengths of 0.062 rod long enough to make the pivot rods for the pedals and the right angle bracket with slices of 0.080 hex rod drilled at 0.062 for nuts.

    This is the kind of thing I want this site to be famous for. Great job Mark. Put one of these together any time you want.
