Diy

just to let people know that restoring pedal clusters is a simple DIY job. If your able to remove a pedal cluster yourself then the simple task of grabbing a couple bushings and a new spring is not involved . Stop at home Depo and grab a rattle can of black paint and your finished . Theres really not that much to it unless you have significant rust . Don't be fooled by nonsense about these clusters being a major engineering obstacle .

How much do you charge to do the resto if I send you a few sets? Powder coated, cad plated bits as well as the housing before powder coat and brass bushings.

cluster

Chris please keep in mind that this cluster is about function and not about Visual appeal . No one looks at a car and says WOW that pedal cluster looks great . If you want me to powder coat the housing and pedals and cad plate hardware just give me call at the shop and ill work out a reasonable price. Cheers

It is cheap to fix, not so to restore, big difference.

Had a friend asking me. Guy put big $’s into an early 912.
I don’t have time to mess with it and remembered seeing high end
Redone cluster for around $250 here. He’s willing to pay for a nice
One.

I think Shaun meant bronze bushings? Not brass.

I've had a few of Bruce Stone's pedal clusters in my Porsches, I can vouch for his work!

clusters

Shaun@tru6 looks like he does very nice work and his service is in-house compared to other posters who will simply out source coatings and plating and ad a healthy mark-up to those who don't know any better . Save your money and DIY its easy....

CON: DIY: rattle cans paint will chip, scratches, rust creeps up after a bit of wear and tear and so forth when installed pedal cluster. Will cheapen the looks "rattle cans paint" pedal cluster.

PRO: DIY: Get a used worn out working small portable OVEN, powder coating sprayer equipment, powder coating color cans of your choice, powder small parts such as pedals, RUST proof, long lasting as hardly any wear and tear and be HAPPY with best results as a long term worth for your investment. Will enrich the looks as a superior quality powder coated pedal cluster.
*** And besides you can always use powder coating on many other small components in your spare time...***

Pricing is important, because there are many folks here doing this work for the Pelicans.
