Seems the biggest challenge to taking any kind of road trip with the M3W is what to do with your foot while not clutching.

What kind of creative solutions have folks come up with for a dead pedal? Obviously it can't and won't take much. I'm thinking along the lines of a rubber door stopper to just catch the side edge of my shoe.

Ideas?

Morgan Motors of New England suggested a wooden vertical dowel from the top bar of the frame to the bottom at about the same distance from the clutch pedal. It could be slightly smaller in diameter.

Gorilla glue would do the trick. Removing the plate above where the hydraulic lines come through would make drilling a bit easier.

As you all know, I'm NOT a M3W owner, but have driven lots of cars with narrow pedal spacing; and I think the M3W falls into that category.

In the days of old, my daily was a '64 VW Bug. When winter rolled around I hit both clutch and brake pedals at the same time with slightly wider boots.

Now with a size 13W shoe, I bet I would be hard pressed to have any stop in the clutch side area. Smaller feet and driving shoes may help in that regard.

I remember back in the late 80's Audi had sudden acceleration issue and come to find out it was when people were applying the brakes and hit the go pedal at the same time. The harder they pushed on the brake to stop the car the more go the car got. Many people drove through the end of their garage because of that problem.

I'm just bringing this all up as there is NOT a lot of room down yonder in that there pedal box area.

Mr. Wood! Thanks for the visual. The vertical tubular framing locations don't help (or maybe they do) with the solution. Certainly not the one I had in mind.
