I did it...but the Cougar is gone as of today...sorry, but I couldnt find any pics.
Just drill through the rubber dead pedal and squirt some adhesive in the holes and on the new dead pedal. There is padding behind the dead pedal and its like an inch down to the metal ...so you cant glue it to the metal. I used Versa-Chem black hi-temp silicone gasket type 998 and you couldnt have pulled that sucker out with crow bar. Just push something against it till it dries.
Actually I have a "better idea" (mainly one of my own) brewing...
I have been thinking of covering the dash shroud (large black plastic piece over the gauge cluter containing the three HVAC vents) in red LEATHER [a'la Porsche] to match the planned (but as-of-yet unfulfilled) re-upolstering of the OBX Racing seats, center console armrest, and OEM rear seats (along with the door panel inserts) in said material.
