Just refreshing a previous thread so people don't need to crawl through four pages...
(Previous thread: http://www.chevybolt.org/forum/154-what-did-you-do-your-chevy-bolt-ev-today/10874-now-available-dead-pedal-footrest-carpet-protector.html)

I'm still offering my latest project for sale - the Bolt carpet protector footrest dead pedal.

The issue is that the carpeted left foot rest in the Bolt quickly gets dirty, and don't even ask about pine needles the carpet absorbs - way beyond vacuuming - you need tweezers.

So the solution is a sturdy black 3D-printed ABS plastic foot rest cover, about 1/8" thick, so it doesn't raise foot placement much. It's designed with non-slip nubs, to match the appearance of the brake pedal cover as closely as possible - it looks stock.

Installation takes 10 seconds - just place it on the carpet and press a little. It won't move around, because the back side is completely covered with 4" wide Velcro hooks. It is easily removed, if ever: just peel it off the carpet.

I'm asking $32, which includes USPS Priority Mail to US addresses only. PayPal rwzehr @ gmail(dot)com

And here are images of the footrest collected in one post.

Wouldn't be surprised if over the coming months and years that this becomes a more popular thing to do. All my vehicles had something similar and I couldn't do without one, sames goes for a lot of people I know. Hopefully it some good quality rubber that doesn't give off too much of a smell.

Good job on those! Blends with the brake pedal cover too, and we'll probably see more home made Bolt bits from owners as time goes on.

Have a lot of members already bought one? It would be great to have a little testimonials post just to provide even more backing for the product!!

I sent a PayPal payment to EldRick for one of these last Wednesday evening. It arrived on Monday, looked good, and installed in seconds. Thanks! There was no other communication (e.g., ship notification).

Now installed in about .75% of all the Bolts sold so far, and no dissatisfied customers. See the top of this thread for PayPal...

Bump for a great product. Stopped by the dealer today for a quick bull session with the salesman and showed it to him.
"Where in the heck did you get that?!? That's really cool."
Just sayin'...

I made mine from a Harbor Freight stair tread ($6+t) and Walmart 2" Velcro ($3+t), not to save $$ but just to see if I could do it. It does not look as good as EldRick's (great product, great service, great price), but it fits well and is very functional.

Wondering why EldRIK status shows banned. Does it mean he broke some rules of website and we should not buy his products?
