Hey Tom,
I am assuming those are original Redlines on your Pacer and not repro's! Wink

I sent samples ( Weave, Steve etc) to Heartbeat City with instructions to match the carpet to any year that fits best. I requested that they tell me the color which of course they did not.. I called and of course they could not remember. The box is the most indescript box I have ever seen. No part #, manufacturer, no country of origin..NOTHIN'
I gave up on them. But I am keeping all the trimmings and will mail samples to anyone who would like one.. Thats the best I can do

The tires are repro's... I'm driving this car for real.. The car is a four speed and has a nice tight posi... I doubt this rubber will last long Wink 2009 IPC

Will keep an eye out for the correct brake pedal pad Wink


Funny! When I got my car it just had the disc emblem and no trim. I bought the trim and did something similar. The disc would pop out of mine, so I cut notches in it so it would fit over the trim. The Paddock is about a 40 min. drive from me. Was out there one day and got a new plain pad for like around $5 I think. Swapped the trim onto it and stuck in on, Picture on the owners page shows the old one before I corrected it. Another thing is I beleive they have manual pedal pad kits and it comes with both disc. emblem and plain brake pads.

And next time I'm getting redline radials, Bias plys suck for a driver. Was going up to Auburn and the back tires were bald and couldn't afford all four the last time.

Another thing I noticed. My car did not have the black plastic cover over the firewall sound deadener in the pedal/steering column area. I bought one years ago and discovered there wasn't even a mounting hole in the firewall for the left side attachment point. Have always wondered about when they started putting those in/was there an earlier version without that hole, etc. etc?
Do all you guys cars have that cover?

P.S. The Paddock has that brake pedal pad for $3.95. But now you gotta buy the trim tooWink

Dude! your full of great tidbits.. keep them coming! Ok get this: I buy the cover because mines missing...I cannot see any holes in the firewall pad as a guide so I go to the outside firewall and right inside the cove that holds the cage nut for the middle subframe mount is a screw hole...lines up perfect with the cover..( left side near dimmer switch ). Funny thing is, the right side hole in the cover matches up perfectly with one of the rubber inserts that holds the firewall pad..I'm perplexed but rationalize that the guys that owned the car previously must have put that plug in ( some where missing...plenty on monkey business under this dash ).. I literally screwed the screw right into the rubber plug and it worked fine.. BUT in hindsight I had to really thread the left side into the existing hole as if no screw had ever been threaded through confused Cheers

Yeah I'm still not sure if it even is supposed to have one. I didn't do anything to mount on the left side, but I had to do something like you did on the right. I assumed that the rubber plug held both the pad and cover but when I tried to pull the rubber plug out it ripped in half! I have a machine screw go thru the ripped plug with a nut on the other side in the engine compartment. One of many little incorrect details on my old clunker.

I will. I double checked the box..Zippo, as a matter of fact they pulled the lable off before shipping it.. whacky & weird

The carpet fit real decent by the way... lots of oversize so lots of trimming but worth it
