-This was meant to be a fairly ​straight forward job, but I found it wasn't that easyStill do-able though, and the results look really good, especially at night under neons!

Most pedals bolt through the original, so this is what the guide below is based on
  
-1)First things first, pick your pedals. ​I chose a set from Ripspeed. Be aware that the AX's pedals are very close together, so don'​t ​pick too wide a set. If in any doubt, ask a shop assistant if you can offer them up to the pedals.  +  - Purchase ​your pedals. ​We used a set from Ripspeed.

- +  ​- ​Remove the rubber covers, and clean the pedals off with methylated spirit, lighter fluid or something similar, to remove grease ​and dirt.  
-2)Remove the rubber covers, and clean the pedals off with meths, lighter fluid or something similar, to remove grease.  +  ​- ​Leaving the hardest to last, start on the clutch pedal. Mark up where the bolt holes will need to be, and then drill a pilot hole with a 3mm drill bit. You will probably find that the drill keeps sliding around. Don't worry, you won't see it, and keep persevering because you will get it eventually. Alternatvely if you have a suitable size wooden block, you can wedge this behind the pedal to prevent pedal movement
- +  ​- ​Drill both holes out so that the bolt will fit through, and then bolt the pedal (through the rubber grip), onto the pedal.

You will probably find that the drill keeps sliding around. Don't worry, you won't see it, and keep persevering because you will get it eventually.  +  ​- ​Repeat the above for the brake pedal. It helps if you pump the pedal with the engine off first, so that it is firmer and easier to work on.  
- +  ​- ​Due to the accelerators design, it is quite awkward to fit the accelerator pedal cover. I found it easiest to remove the pedal completely.  
-4)Drill both holes out so that the bolt will fit through ​(it can be bigger than the bolt), and then bolt the pedal (through the rubber grip), onto the pedal.  +  ​- ​Follow the pedal arm up to the dash. It goes through a pivot, and then is connected to the cable. Remove the cable, by pinching the end of the clip through, and then undo the bolts holding the pivot.  
- +  ​- ​Avoiding the grease, remove the pedal and mark it up as before.  
-5)Repeat the above for the brake pedal. It helps if you pump the pedal with the engine off first, so that it is firmer and easier to work on.  +  ​- ​You may find that you are unable to use the centre bolt, as it will reduce the strength of the pedal.  
- +  ​- ​Bolt the top and bottom holes up, and then refit the pedal. ​

 So there you go, a nice set of alloy pedals. Once you've got used to them, they'​re great, very grippy and look a lot better. However, if you want to make them look really good, I recommend fitting footwell neons. ​ So there you go, a nice set of alloy pedals.
