Getting the brake pedal really close to the frame rail…

I was browsing Grant Schwartz’s website ( today and stumbled on this 1947 Mercury gallery. Grant is doing some neat frame work here, but what I zeroed in on was the way he mounted the brake pedal bracket. He used a Welder Series #WS25800 kit, and instead of bolting the pedal bracket to the frame using the tabs in the kit, he shortened the lower plate and set the upper plate on top of the frame rail. This is very similar to the way Lowdown Hotrods did the remote pedal kit in a Model A frame they built (pictures are on the WS25800 product page of our web store). Both these methods will get the brake pedal very close to the inside of the frame rail.

You can also see our #206 body mount plates Grant used.
