Those are indeed very good. On the throttle there is an extension at top and bottom. You can keep both or only one up to your preference. I keep both on as I'm used to rolling feed (top) and heel / toe (bottom) pending on how aggressive I must break.

I tend to use the side of my foot to add some throttle when braking as I can't quite bend my leg (hip, knee, ankle) enough to get any meaningful pressure on the bottom of the throttle pedal with my heel, but these might be an improvement and I'd be keen to try.

The throttle pedal that I spotted is adjustable every which way:

Rich, group buy?

New centre decal wheel caps after one disappeared. Not sure if it was pinched or just fell off. Any tips for securing these against theft?

This week I bought 2 clips that hold the panel in place in the frunk, a 3/4 size adhesive front number plate for when I’ve had my nose job done and a BMC air filter.

Replacement rear light. I'm sure the other one will need it soon.

Dropped the car into George McMillan’s to have her annual oil change and the nuts and bolts checked after having the exhaust fitted a couple of weeks ago.

Major service with oil supplied by me (no spark plugs), brake fluid change, gearbox oil change, plus a couple of very minor other bits and pieces. £820.... Dont know

Out of interest - would a major normally involve removing all of the under trays? I asked them to check whether I should waxoyl the underneath and when I collected it they said not to worry but they couldn't tell because the trays obscured all the pipes etc.

Picked the GTS up today from supercar paint protection / wombat wrapping after getting them to install PPF to it. They've done a cracking job

Is there a UK supplier for the Rennline pedals or do you have to ship them from the US?

Design 911 do rennline stuff , but note rennline are for LHD cars so everything but the dead pedal should be ok, not sure how rob overcame the dead pedal unless he just made a LHD one fit a RHD car

I've ordered direct from Rennline before and it worked out much cheaper that anywhere in the UK even including shipping and tax! Good service too, only took a week!
