Don't think of installing aluminum pedal pads/covers as a "ricer" or "bling" upgrade for your classic Mustang. Why? Because once you do some spirited driving with a quality designed pedal pad set, you'll see that they are actually quite beneficial for increased pedal grip and better heel-and-toe down shifting. Notice we said "quality" in that statement. There are multitudes of pedal pad kits out there that are, shall we say, flea market quality. These inferior products are indeed more for looks than anything else. But if you take the time to install something like these billet aluminum/magnesium alloy pedal pads from Total Control Products (TCP), you'll immediately feel the difference the first time you shift or grab some brake for an upcoming corner. Installation couldn't be much easier than carefully measuring pad location, drilling a few mounting holes, and installing the included flush-fit hardware. Check out this new Quick Tech where we ditch the slippery rubber pads and upgrade this early Mustang with TCP's pedal pad kit.
