Great looks, but didn't want the dead pedal
I just installed these today in my 08 GT. They look great. They went on easily and intuitively, which is good because my set arrived with no instructions; not sure if this was just an oversight or if these normally don't come with them. I can't speak for the dead pedal cover, because I didn't install it and don't intend to. I really wish a set was offered without this cover. You can get installation instructions here from the AM website, minus instructions for installing the dead pedal (not sure why that install isn't covered), and when they tell you to press firmly on the gas pedal to get it to stick, they're not kidding - the raised ribs on my pedal made making that cover stick mean REALLY putting my weight behind the cover to make contact. At first, the cover actually slipped right off before I leaned into it to make the tape hit and stay. The brake pedal was a piece of cake - it's been warm here lately, and that original cover came off by hand. The new one took a bit of elbow grease, but went on with no trouble using a thin, angled trim tool. All in all, a simple install with a nice upgraded look and feel (metal pedals are always appreciated, especially since I'm a year-round driver so these should be easier to clean than the rubber OEMs - longevity remains to be determined in my high-winter salt environment), but it loses a star because, like I said, I don't want or need the dead pedal.
