I'm still grumpy that they wouldn't provide the pdf version to people that had purchased the paper version previously.

You'll soon be able to get it for free.

Also to be fair, they are 2 seperate commodities, if you got the free PDF version then you have 2 copies of the manual.

Years ago I got pulled over by the cops for having a bare metal car in Australia. I got away with it saying that I was in the middle of prepping for paint but was told that it has to have a colour. 

Anybody know if that is the same story in NZ? Or can I clear coat bare steel and call it a day. It is a farm truck.

Yes the bushing does , in my lotus 7 it basically uses a replica of the original 100e pedal with the pivot holes changed to make it reverse swing mount and originally they cut and welded the pedals when converting them. The bushings were braised into the pedal originally have had a friend ream and interference press the original bushing into a profile cut blank but want to weld it to make sure it cant move

@cletus building a brake pedal when welding the bushing into the pedal what are the rules is it like all other safety critical components where its Tig followed by NDT?

Yes, brake pedal can only be welded for the pivot and where the pedal pad attaches to the pedal arm. Must be TIG welded, and must pass NDT and include a report from the testing lab. 
See your certifier and ask them for an F008 to be filled out so the test lab knows what they are testing and what standard they must use.

So the bushing should go through the pedal rather than be tacked on the end I'm guessing?

I wanna make a new one too actually. 

Can original be heat bent and I weld the pedal pad back on shorter?

Correct, pivot must go through the pedal, not welded to the end.

No, pedal cannot be heated and bent.

Should be fine, strengthening the factory structure is never usually a problem unless you start modifying areas forward of the suspension mounting and messing with how a vehicle crumples in an accident 

That doesnt happen very often though as theres not usually any reason to
