    How do I remove the pedalbox

    I've got the brake booster and master cylinder out. Steering column is out. Undid the one bolt on the bottom and removed the air duct. I don't know where to go from here

    Throttle cable and I believe there are a pair of bolts that attach to the dash.

    Otherwise its glued on the firewall. Also be prepared that it's much heavier than it looks.

    Holy hell that's a pain in the ass. Binnacle needs to come out cause there's hex head bolts under it that'll spin otherwise. I still havent been able to break the damn glue free

    Pedal Box Removal

    Graham,

    We talked about doing this at Delorean Weekend this year. I removed the Pedal box and relocated it (for my wide shoes) as Part of the Iron Man Delorean I am building. (it is talked about in other threads.)

    There are 3 bolts that go through the bulk head and can be reached from under the front fender. Unforunately, they spin, so you will either need 2 persons, or grow much longer arms. ! They are not obvious.

    There is also that peskey little bolt to the dash, I just ground it off since it really does not do anything and I did not want to disassemble the dash at that time. I did remove the dash, eventually as part of the
    new dashboard I am designing and installing.

    We did tape the presentation and will put it up on line sometime in the next year. Otherwise, i will be talking about the Iron Man Delorean again next year at Delorean Weekend. and its further evolution.

    Selling my manual to ramblindmc for his auto to manual conversion since I don't need it with the ev. We're trading pedalboxes in the process.

    Cool...looking forward to seeing the progress on that.

    I also saw you mentioned a frame off, I'll be following closely since I'm planning the same with my next car.
