Another one of Jacek's creations from Carbon Zone Poland:

Ordered on Apr. 11 and received May 26th. Took exactly 45 days to receive but well worth the wait. Postage said it was postmarked on May 9th, so transit from Poland to USA was about 17 days.

Discovery.

I’m probably not first or last to realize something my car did to me safety wise today.
Idling, I’d buckled up ready to roll then realized I forgot something inside.
Being in neutral, belted in, when I unbuckled I heard the whir of the electronic parking brake setting itself. The R was thinking I was getting out, so it set the brake so the car wouldn’t roll away. In nearly 13k miles this surely happened before without being noticed and I finally paid attention. The parking brake and brake hold were off prior

Say what you want about e-brakes, I don’t miss the slides as much as I appreciate the no chance of ‘Oh crap it rolled away’ and Brake Hold in traffic, even here in pretty flat FL (3 bridges in commute).

I learned on and later daily drove a 2nd gen hatch with an e-brake that only gave the car a suggestion to stay in place. Getting stuck first in line at the drawbridge probably could have counted as my exercise for the day cause my heart rate was sky high every time :D

How were you able to attach it? Does it overlap over rubber or does that come off and you fasten these in in it's place?
Sir Tuck (helping out OP),
The entire back of the dead pedal, (and in my case heel plate) are a gray DFT sheet material so some IPA and basic alignment is all you need but some mild heat seats it well. I used heat again to coax separation from OEM mats that allowed reinstall on the Manicci customs using same adhesive back.

Looks like a nice next upgrade for the interior of the car. I think I should address the OEDRO floormat lip issue I'm having with back heel getting caught first. I think a piece of electrical tape would resolve that issue.

After track session #2 at Inde Motorsports went to get lunch and fuel up. This happened on the road. Limped back to the track to put on my street tires and call it a day. Atleast I got home early from the track. Unfortunately I was just starting to learn the track!

Electrical, Gorilla tape, whatever holds up.
Being a golfer, sometimes hybrid shoes want to play Lego with the heel plate.
Don’t need fancy shoes for ride down the beach.
