Brake gas pedal

Does anyone know a vendor that sells the medal covers for the gas,brake and deadfot pedals. I looked on eBay and they are all from China. I really want something nice

Do a search for metal covers and you may have some luck.

Brian from SRP Racing in NC makes them, I have got his throttle pedal cover (have had 2 actually, I started with the one that has 2 bumpouts for heel toe, and then went to the one that was a little wider but no bumpouts), and I just bought a pair of brake and clutch covers from them:

Edit: here is a picture of them from Woody's build thread - these are the same style as the ones I recently bought.

I did the Rennline gas pedal with the adjustable spacer plate option that goes underneath it and the side tabs last year. They provide a paper template to show you where to drill the holes. It wasn't hard at all. I got it done without any screw-ups. For me I often have a screw up before achieving success so I would say it was pretty easy. The brake and clutch pedals are metal so drilling them is probably a bit tougher, I only wanted to make my gas pedal more adjustable to try heel and toe.

I did the China thing as I really wanted the look, not for racing. They were a pleasant surprise for the $$$. I also bought with rubber inserts.
You don't have clutch pedal so easier as making sure the clutch and brake pedals lined up. I bought some different bolts to install as I thought they should be. I also used wood working hand clamps to hold the clutch/brake pedal in their locations as I drilled

Google can be your friend. Lots of choices here:

https://www.google.com/search?ei=R_QaXMa4NcT8tAXRn5WgAg&q=porsche+metal+pedal+covers&oq=porsche+metal+pedal+covers&gs_l=psy-ab.12..33i299.5249.15287..16457...0.0..0.110.1080. 13j1......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0i7i30j0i8i7i30j0i8i7i10i30.Vr7uF7m xSjA

The Porsche dead pedal and accelerator pedal are both plastic and are easily drilled and, IIRC, so is the clutch pedal; however, the brake pedal is steel, so you need to invest in one or two cobalt drill bits. I also used some cutting fluid I had on hand when I drilled my brake pedal.

FYI, mine, including the black rubber inserts, cost me less than a C note on Ebay 4 or 5 years ago.

Yes you install on top of existing dead foot and gas pedals, remove rubber from brake & clutch and install.

I can't remember whether I had to drill three holes in the OE dead pedal, or whether I removed the OE screw from the OE dead pedal, and was able to line up the upper hole in the aluminum cover and had to drill only two holes for the short attaching screws. Either way, it's easy work.

Pulled off the OE rubber brake pedal cover, marked metal brake pedal and drilled the three holes needed to attach the aluminum cover. Same process for clutch lever. Rubber OE pedal covers are not reattached.

Attached the aluminum accelerator pedal to the OE pedal with short screws after drilling three holes.

I forgot to mention that the necessary fasteners weren't included by my Ebay seller, but since I had onhand lots of flathead stainless steel screws and machine screws, and nyloc nuts, I was able to use them.

I'd suggest that if your selected seller doesn't say that the necessary fasteners are included with the kit, that you check with them before you place your order.

Hope this helps.

Major tip if not already mentioned (didn't see)...

Start w/ the brake pedal. You'll be tempted to start w/ the clutch pedal since it's easier but don't.

Why?

The brake pedal, being hardened, has clearance restrictions. Start there and then easily line up clutch pedal to match w/o issue. The reverse however is not true And use a center punch...

Good luck

Any links are leads on these? How much did they set you back?
They're really nice looking

If you can't find any, I suppose you could glue one of the Porsche logos that Sunset Porsche, ECS, and others sell, to one or more of the non-Chinese pedals on Ebay or elsewhere that don't have any writing on the pedals using superglue, epoxy, or something else. Here's the one at ECS:

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-porsche-parts/key-fob-emblem/99663744300/?gclid=CjwKCAiA3vfgBRB9EiwAkfpd3IxB5ZIkwlVLJkQX2qw CcZkhlWYNUIXKjXHj6FFxmbrtY2sp9F3RRBoCQ-wQAvD_BwE

There may be other Porsche logos here that may be better suited to the task:
