R1 Billet Pedals Customization & Install
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com
1) Pedal set - I choose the R1 Pedals because I liked the raised "grip" they have on their brake pedals
2) Screwdriver-type - as required by the pedal set's clips
3) Colored red vinyl - can be picked up at just about any fabric store for under a dollar
4) Thin piece of cardboard - think: cereal box thin
The pedal Set that I choose: R1 Billet Pedals - Similar styles should cost around $8 to $14 from any speed shop, $14 and up from a Scion/Toyota specialty department.
For each of the pedals (on automatic trans: just the Acceleration and Brake pedals), since the set's hardware mounts were ever-so-slightly more narrow than stock pedals, I only just used three of the four supplied screw-attachments and made sure they were securely set
The Brake Pedal: I used top and bottom and right side (three)
The Accelerator: I used both on the right and then only the top one on the left (three)

It has been over a month and not a single problem.
When screwing in the clips, just screw them in until they are secure. You want the pedals to be secure so that they don't slip around. When tightening, remember that if they are on too tight, you wont be able to easily unscrew them if you ever decide to remove them.
If you are still having problems, look at the pedals and screw things together before installing them to your car.. this will give you an idea of whats happening. Then remove everything and do the actual install to your car.
Partial install without colored vinyl backing...
Red colored vinyl (inserts) cut to match the same shape of the pedals and placed behind the pedals with a slim piece of cardboard behind that (think: cereal box thin cardboard) to support the vinyl material...
Final installPedals do not come with the red colored vinyl (inserts) shown.
I wanted to customize the look of the pedals so I added the inserts. If however you do like the look with the vinyl inserts, the material can be picked up at just about any fabric store for under a dollar and then easily cut to size of your pedals.
