Cockpit laminate flooring

Before I get the - Have you searched - the answer is yes. I am trying to see some pictures of the gas(fuel) and brake pedal area after laminate flooring has been installed. I would like to know how the flooring is put in and around these pedals.

Thanks, bob

Bob- can you post a photo of your pedals?
There are 2 types. Those that are suspended and those that are mounted to the floor. and the type of accelerator can either be direct cable or electronic.

I would pull that old carpet, pad, and 1500 pounds of staples. Lots of times I use some construction paper to make a pattern for those pedals. Installing hard surface around those is time consuming, so be prepared for that.
But the end result will be a problem area that will be easier to keep clean.

Disconnect the linkage, unbolt and remove the pedals.

If you have air brakes, there is a valve connected to the brake pedal. I would not mess with that.

Looks like a cotter pin and shaft on the brake pedal but definitely take a close look.

I'm just thinking like an installer when it comes to adjusting, disconnecting, etc that was constructed at the factory- if I put a wrench to it and it gets screwed up- its' mine. I don't need that.
Now, if an owner wishes to do the removal- its' on his shoulders.

This doesn't quite answer but I installed engineered hardwood EXCEPT at the driver's feet. In that location I installed luxury vinyl. I wanted the easy cleanup of that area and the ability to do a partial repair if necessary. Once the carpet was removed I made a template that went around the pedals. I repainted the area behind the pedals (satin black). I also did the firewall in the same vinyl. I have some "in progress" photos ... driver's side is vinyl and other pick is passenger area which is hardwood. The vinyl is also in my entry step area. Eventually the transition area was trimmed in matching oak. Mine's a diesel so the box covering the Onan is square - ish.

Thanks Ernie ... not as good as your beautiful work but it's actually functioning just like I planned ... eezy-peezy cleanup !! The transition is rearward of the seat skirt so my heels never touch it when flopping around to get comfortable.

I forgot to mention it but I think (it's been awhile) I used the same template and cut a plywood insert to bring the vinyl up nearly flush with the hardwood.
