Nice job on the mat. You just need the clutch pedal pad and it will be real fine!

Congratulations on the floor mat, and of course on all the other great work. I did a floor mat a couple of months ago for my B so I can relate to the pressure of not screwing it up. I made a template out of heavy brown paper. The only place I wasn't sure of is around the clutch pedal. When you get the hole large enough to not drag on the pedal shaft you get some noise and day light. Seems like there should be a rubber pad or some such thing on the shaft to seal the hole when the clutch is not in use.

Very very nice job on this B. It'll be a shame, though, to put that crummy old dump body back on.....unless you've had plans for that too..... ;)

BTW, my truck has such a rubber pad helping to cover that hole for the shaft. Guess I was fortunate!

The plan is to sandblast it and paint it metallic gray. It should look pretty good.

yup the mats can be a pita to do and get right. the clutch and steering column along with the e brake and shifting levers had a heavy 1/4 foam around them to stop the air flow . some of the shifting lever sealin pads were actually screwed to the floor board with another piece of sheet metal over them.

Nice job all around,a piece of carpet trim along the edge of your mats would look sweet and keep any dirt from getting underneath,thats how I did mine anyway.
