Cartels-less 986..?

So I've unsuccessfully been looking for a pic of how a carpet-less 986 looks like, but no luck. I.e., I'd appreciate if someone could give me a pointer.

Besides, I''m also looking for a pic of how a stripped down (fully exposed) brake handle looks like -- without all the plastic.

I just got those aluminum race floor-panels that I'm debating whether to install, in lieu of my soaked & stinky carpets, or not...

(Btw, if anyone in SF bay area knows how to reset an immobilizer, please p.m. me)

Sorry guys, I sure wish that one was mine. Dont know why it didn't load with my comments, pic only, but that was posted here previously. I apologize but I dont have the information to give credit where it is due.

Be careful what you wish for. I did that with my 911 years ago. Removed carpet, stereo, AC. Hated it, I could hear every creak and rattle. For a track car yes, street car be careful. I'm actually going to add sound proofing.
I hope you like whatever you do.
If you find those RS panels, please let me know where you found.
