I was bored today so since ive been wanting to get some of those cheap 30 bux pedals off ebay i decided to see how close i could make mine look good. lol spray painted them black and then grinded off the raised portions with a dremel leaving the lines black. Looks pretty decent i think. for the accelerator i painted it chrome silver (ends up looking just gray silver) then after drying for no less or more than 30-45 seconds using mineral spirits to remove all the paint except for whats in the creavaces. it turns out very good i think. (The brown spot is acutally a reflection not a rust spot)

Then put your stock pedal covers back on... they are functional, since I bet it would suck to have your foot slip off of a pedal.

i dont have any. they have been run through by my converse. Excessive heel toe shit ruined the edging on the sides and underneath so they would always fall off... that was worse believe me.

**edit hrmm i just read what leet said and thats a pretty good idea. Put skateboard grip tape on the pedals... That would be really tight. hrmm thanks. im gonna do that methinks
