Looking for a few aluminum accessories...

I've been interested in "aluminizing" my car a little bit by adding aluminum pedals (Manual transmission, but can't find any), and MAYBE the aluminum guage cover from ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB....cWAT.m240.lVI
Also, if anyone has a link to a solid aluminum shifter knob, it'd be appreciated.

Any other sets of aluminum pedals besides those? I couldn't care less if I bought some off-brand set.

The pedals will work, you might just have to do some drilling, the grill will work for sure, but im not sure about the knob. You might wanna look up the screw pattern and see if it will.

the problem with any set of aftermarket pedals is that our cars use an accelerator pedal that is one molded, curved piece of plastic that is fused to the "lever", if you will. Any aftermarket pedal will need to be bent, and secured with screws or bolts. That is why most people choose the svt pedals, cause the SVT accelerator is the same single accelerator piece, with the plastic replaced by the aluminum.

However, many people have made other accel pedals work. If you just bend it very carefully and secure it, it should be fine.

Steeda sells some aluminum AC/heat knobs and face plate like on SVTF's. They also have the side mirror knob in aluminum.
