Wanting to build custom pedals (wilwood Top Mounted)

1 post in this topic

Hello, guys and gals, I hope everyone is going well. I'm currently looking to start building pedals for my sim rig I'm building.  and I know I could go to ricmotech and buy them but they are expensive and it'd  be a lot easier for me if I could buy the parts and build them myself, so I can spread the cost out. I've been looking up forums and youtube video's on what I'd need but I'm coming up empty handed. I will link to the pedals I'm wanting to build. Moreover, I'm not to mechanically inclined, but if I have all the parts I can and possibly good guides I can figure it out. In addition, I know the clutch and break will need a master and slave cylinder or at least the break will, but the two things that confuse me the most is what parts would I need for the throttle and how would I attach the slave cylinders to the break and possibly the clutch. Furthermore, I came across this youtube video on how to build a hydraulic hand brake, which clear up things alot. on how to build theses pedals but still some what confused.

From the video and from viewing the pictures and the video on ricmotech this is what I know I will need a minimum

Nevertheless, this is what I know so far and I know I the parts can be swapped for others.  so any help would be appreciative.
