Does your Dead Foot Pedal get dirty?

I have the Gray colored interior and I noticed early on that this Left Foot Pad will ALWAYS get dirty, so I took a piece of Body Side Molding, cut it to size and applied it to the existing pad.

The Body Side Molding can be procured from a After-Market Body Side Molding Vendor.

The piece I used was from a mid-to-late 90's GM Truck. It is about 3 inches wide and has two rows of 3m adhesive, so it should be a good long term solution.

Won't that also get dirty? Why does it matter if the black is dirty but not the gray?
Dude is that a real question?


If you are going to do some real dirty work, do you wear a white shirt?

I think Plato noted this several thousand years ago,

"Dark Colors show lesss dirt"
Yes, and I had also accumulated lots of scratches as well, so I purchased the M dead pedal.
Pretty cool idea! My gray pedal is plagued with everything from scratches to cuts to dirt, etc.
Nope... Mine does not get dirty, because I don't use it... My left foot is usually under the clutch pedal...
Errrrr........good point:( But what about when you go into a hard turn:dunno:

Mine, since I have no use for my left foot, is often dirty:bawling: But nothing I can't take care of with a quick wipe down. I will probably be very good about cleaning it once I "Clem-ify" my pedals (enabling SOB).:D

I'm at Disney so you'd have had to take a nice drive to visit, which is a good thing:thumb:

We changed to come down the day after school is out. Plus my sister in-law from West Palm is meeting us there and then coming up to PA for a week visit. She's driving up the same day we fly home.:)

If you want you can over night the M key to me and I'll stop by and check in on her for you:bigpimp: :D :thumb:
