Pedals, R1 Billet Pedals Customization & Install

R1 Billet Pedals Customization & Install
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com

Parts needed:
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)
check the many pictures below to see exactly what im talking about

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 install

Pedals 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.

What about dead pedal/foot rest installation?

The R1 pedals do not come with dead-pedal/foot-rest.

But if you purchase a package that comes with this option and you want to install it, the only route I have seem performed was to actually screw the pedal cover into the dead pedal - but this makes holes.

Hot glue maybe? Im not sure that route is such a good idea though, ie; permanent.

Simple solution might be to just not install the dead pedal unless it was specifically made for your Celica.

Again, I dont know since it is not something I have done.

it seems so but i wanted to know if there was a post for installing a dead pedal. It seems like it would be more needed than one for just the screw on pedals.

There are a lot of installs that are simple for many to figure out, such as the S2000 antenna - there are also guides for installing that.

While this guide is very basic for a very basic install, it serves two purposes;
1) its a guide for people who haven't purchased the items yet and would like to know how they attach before they buy.
2) this is a simple bolt-on installation and not everyone else knows that. through this pictorial, people can see that nothing needs to be removed since these are just bolt-on pedal-covers.

If you really want these pedals, a quick search on google may point you in the right direction of a retailer who might have them in stock -- or of a retailer who has a style you may prefer more.

Good luck

should you leave the rubber covers on the stock pedals on or take them off?
