Fabricating the Driver's Footrest for Our Quattro Rally Car

Posted on Aug 12, 2021
Driver's Footrest: In case there’s a long straight between corners or for transits we thought we should have a nice foot rest for our clutch foot. Of course, we tried to reproduce the one on the factory cars because buying a perfectly good off the shelf one would make too much sense. First some auto CAD:

Followed by some 1/8” aluminium, with dimple holes:

Then we cut it and welded it at what we thought was the appropriate angles. It’s just tack welded for now in case we don’t know what we’re doing.

Then we temporarily fastened it in place with some self-tappers. These will be replaced with rivnuts once the shell is painted.
