I have recently acquired a 2002 Thunder Ranch 550A Spyder. The detail of this machine is pretty fantastic but the pedals are off the shelf VW and look as if they intrude several extra inches toward the seat which I would like to get back (I am 6'2"). After seeing the artwork that Vintage, Fibersteel and current Beck Spyders have for a pedal set, I am hoping to elevate this part of my Spyder as a winter project. Hopefully a Member has already done this and can advise specific to Thunder Ranch Spyders as I really do not wish to open a Pandora's Box of complex fabrication. I have spoken with Carey Hines @Beck (very helpful, nice guy!) and have come to learn that their pedal configuration was changed post the sale of their molds to Thunder Ranch so their parts mount differently. A strange but interesting feature of my car is a hydraulic "line lock" for an emergency brake so I probably do not want to disrupt that system.
Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate this Holiday!
