    For years I’ve had to drive with my right foot on the gas but under the brake pedal. Not the safest way to drive but easily done after years of practice. You also had to be careful concerning footwear. I finally decided to make footroom for sasquatch.

    I took a multi tool (vibrating saw) and cut a hole in the tunnel.

    Then laid plastic wrap over the opening making a pocket.

    After laying on a layer of fiberglass I pulled the plastic wrap off the tunnel and put additional layers of glass enjoying the comfort of a workbench until I had a pocket.

    Placing the pocket back in the hole, all I have to do is glass in the flange of loose cloth.

    I used the car for work today with the open hole behind the carpet. Just the give in the carpet was a much more comfortable drive. I hope to have this done by the end of the weekend where I can figure out how best to trim it out.

    Nice!

    Who knew you had so much room between the tunnel and the actual works?

    Good idea.  Now if someone can come up for space for the left leg/foot.  I have always had my knee bent and foot tucked under the right leg.  One reason I’m glad I have an automatic.  Not sure how you other sasquatches do a clutch.

    I am a mere 10-1/2EEEE. Working a Std trans VW.
    But, I play a big organ (not a keyboard).
    So clutch, brake, gas is simply E, F, F#. Respectively.

    Thanks, Roy.  I will never again see shifting gears in the same light.

    Good Job Bill

    I feel my driving space is fine on my Fiberfab but always wondered why they made the leg space so much shorter on the passenger side when there is room under the gas tank to allow the same space for the right seater as the driver. On my list of to do items this winter. Cut fiberglass and extend the foot well.

    Mine must be the European model, leg room on passenger side is longer.  Go figure, should-a put the steering on that side.
