I like it....but as I told you I'm concerned about wet traction. Would it be possible to machine in a miniature grippy pyramid patch like the handle of a ratchet wrench? I personally think that would be a very good suggestion but you arent one to listen to me only call my weather a gaping angry bleeding vagina lol

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

I think once you see how grippy it is, you may reconsider. The raised areas do a good job to retain the tread on most of my shoes...I have had one opportunity to use them wet so far. Maybe a sandblasted version?

I would buy that package.

I'm likely buying the floor plate to compliment the brand new floor mats and 3rd pedal.
Without matching pedals available might as well paint the stock ones black


Curious how black the anodize is. I've seen a lot of shades of black aluminum over the years and some look almost gray. Like the back of an older iPhone... but others appear black as night in all light.

Is satin powdercoating maybe an option?
