It's been a while, but since Archer's Garage stopped production of the Sebring Pedal Box the only offerings have come from companies building one-off's for individual clients. We were heading to join the numbers of one-off builders, but with a little more effort, a lot of measuring, planning and some beautiful design work we are now able to offer the pedal boxes as a complete finished unit to your specification.
Photographed here is one of the BrookFab™ prototypes which allowed us to build, adjust and change certain design aspects of it to ensure what we are supplying is the best it can be.
As the prototype has proven to be exactly where we need it to be fitment wise, the minor design changes are already in place thanks to our design partners at Dynamic Motorsport Developments and production has been kicked into a high gear.
6 years ago I was contacted by Mark Boldry to produce a pedal box for him after he was let down with a very substandard version. That's when this journey began, 5 years went by in a flash and very little was done other than the odd passing thought, but I found I was being asked by more and more Mk1 Midget and Sprite owners to push forward with the idea and as such the fire was stoked and plans were put in place.
With the drawings and renders complete it was time for some physical product. Every sheet metal component in the pedal box is laser cut from S275 structural steel, specced and designed to add rigidity and prevent any fatigue or failure over years of use, whilst the pedals pivot on cnc machined tubes with oilite bushes and precision 12.9 shouldered bolts.
To top it all off, we designed and machined a billet 6061-T6 master cylinder spacer to allow the extremely snug offset master cylinders to share a space they were never supposed to be in.
If it is a sebring pedal box you are after for your early Sprite or Midget, then look no further. They are available in the online shop (https://brookfab.co.uk/collections/brake-system/products/deposit-for-sebring-sprite-pedal-box) and there you can pick and choose the options applicable to you.
We will have these available as an off-the-shelf item in due course, but in the mean time we will operate on a deposit based system.
