Rennline floorboard install

Just received my new Rennline floorboards, Does anything need to be done to the pedal assembly to get the driver side floorboard into place, I tried very quickly and it seems like I need to remove/reinstall the gas pedal.

My 87

On my 87, the floorboard doesn't even cover the acc pedal screws/floor fasteners.
I don't have to remove anything, floor carpet is out.

Probably need to pop the accel pedal off the push rod. At least that's how the stock board and even the carpet works.

Yup, just pop the pedal off the push rod and you should be good to go. Of course, it's no big deal to remove the two screws holding the pedal to the floor also and remove it for cleaning, etc...

I transferred my pedal stop from the stock floorboard to the Rennline piece. Drill the rivets, then attach to Rennline with small bolts with nylock nuts.

in my 82, with Rennline pedals, I had to remove and pop of the go fast pedal as well as the bake and clutch pedals(aluminum covers only) Simple install, and so glad I did. Wooden floor boards were past it

I finally got around to installing the floorboards this weekend it looks great, very happy!!! One problem I appear to have now is the throttle pedal doesn't seem to have full range. Do I need to shave the pedal stop off the back of the pedal?

Go whole hog and get the pedal set now. The gas pedal adjusts 100 ways (well, a lot). Looks great too.

If you install the dead pedal, trim the tang off the left side of the drivers floor board so you can remove the floor board without removing the dead pedal. Saves a bunch of time. Here's mine. In the second picture, you can see how the bottom left edge appears to go under the dead pedal, but with the tang trimmed, it is easy to remove the floor board.

That looks great! I'm planning on getting the dead pedal and a new pedal set but until then I need to run my factory pedals. Does anyone know, do I need to trim the pedal stop on the gas pedal to make it work with the rennline boards. My gas pedal has a 1in or so stop on the back

Well, you want the pedal to hit the stop just before the linkage is pulled tight, so you don't overstress the linkage. Some trimmimg may be required. You'll have to be the judge of that, since none of the rest of us are anywhere near your car. Have someone floor the pedal while you look at the linkage on the motor.

No...do NOT trim pedal stop. There are adjustments in linkage at both pedal and engine compartment.

I was thinking more in terms of where the pedal ends up (foot position) than anything else. I've never screwed around with aftermarket floor boards but if the one he installed is causing him to hit the pedal stop early, I would be interested in trimming it. If it's not, then it's a moot point anyway.
