of the problems that most people with normal sized feet suffer from
is a distinct lack of room in the footwell in both the Locust and
the Hornet. My solution to the problem was both simple and cheap
and most important of all it works!! (In my Hornet at least!).
a hole at the side of the pedals on the transmission tunnel about
10" by 14" about 1.5" from the floor, common sense
will point you in the right direction as to its exact position.
Then bend a sheet of aluminium (approx. size 18" by 18")
to the shape shown in the diagram below
rivet the closing plate to the end of your aluminium "wedge
shape" using a smear of body filler as sealer. Then from inside
the foot-well screw the foot-well extension to the inside of the
transmission tunnel using B+Q wood repair metal brackets for extra
security, as shown below. again using body filler for weather proofing.
my experience if you can get your fingers in the gap between the
bell housing and the footwell extension you should have no problems
with vibration / knocking due to engine movement. The whole thing
was made and fitted in a morning using just a power jigsaw, for
body cutting, a "workmate" for bending and shaping, and
normal hand tools, total cost was about £5.50p.
