    Default HELP lol, drilling pedals....

    I need some help lol, I'm trying to fit my Irmscher pedals, the accelerator pedal was easy as its plastic but I can't seem to make a mark on the brake and clutch pedals

    Any ideas on what sort of drill bit would easily drill through them??

    Diamond tipped...

    Failing that, cobalt drills are a good bet...

    put a block of wood under the pedal and use a punch to mark it first this should stop your drill from sliding about.

    I think you just need to man up a bit mate...

    Start off with small amounts of pressure to get a starting point and somewhere for the drill to actually sit in to, and when it's stopped moving you can apply some preoper pressure to get through it...
