Footrest opinions needed

I think the Sport needs a matching footrest to set it off.
I have 2 different ones, a type R one professionally made but not quite the right size, and a home made right size one ,but my DIY skills are not what they used to be !
Which one to fit ? Type R

Or DIY.

DSCF1842 (1024x768).jpg

Opinions please, I can take insults as well, but please be gentle !

I prefer the long/thin option that entirely covers the underlying rubber/plastic rest.

Don't knock your skillz, the plates look good.

Thanks for the reply Farqui , I prefer the shape of the DIY aluminium one as well, it's just that when you have to drill 22 holes some of them seem to move, so they're not all in line.
I'll probably stick this one in place , and ( sometime ! ) make a new one in stainless steel to match the pedals better.

I had these made 2 years ago but back then not much interest so never had more made



Right size and a perfect fit, just requires double sided foam tape

Just sent a text to the guy who made this and he can make me some more, I would need around 5 people wanting these and cost would be around 25 each and these are machine cut etc. If a few seem interested I will start a group buy

If I had known about these I would've bought one as they look just right.
My home made one is now fitted to car with double sided tape, it looks OK and most of the time I'm in the car my foot is on top of it so it will do for now.
Thanks anyway for the input RickHondaR .

I also prefer the long/thin option that entirely covers the rubber/plastic rest.
I suggest to drill the holes in the same way/pattern drilled on the pedals..

Thanks, but I've removed this and bought a Polish one ( on e-bay) , that's why I gave the link to the other post.

Long and thin that match the original rest look best.
