    To increase pedal height, I dropped the floor 1 1/2 inches.  This puts floor to depth of frame rail.

    Very TD-ish solution. There is a rubber footwell liner you can get from Moss that replaces the same part on the originals–though they only sink about an inch. I have one in Bridget, as seen here.

    Still have to adjust pads, but much easier to push pedals now.  I do like the roller pedal.  Where can they be gotten?

    Google “roller accelerator pedal” and you are going to find dozens of hits for the VW pedal assembly.

     
    But I’m not seeing anything for Chevette or Pinto pedal assemblies.

    I replaced the big roller with a small caster wheel to get it closer to the original TD size. If I had a Chevette stule gas pedal arm coming down I might think about welding the caster holder to the end of it and calling it a day.

    Key is getting something narrow but workable. The only value of the roller, from a practial standpoint, is that it fits in that narrow footwell.

    I removed the gas pedal, heated and bent it upwards.  I now have more clearance to push brake pedal and I can get the throttle fully open.  So I will not bother with a roller.  Pedal operation is much improved over the original setup.
