Cool...glad you like it Mitch! :D
I was all set to do PayPal refunds...but they charge a fee (5-6% IIRC) and for such a small amount, it seemed like a hassle. So I figured since I'm sending everyone a footrest anyway - why not drop the refund in the envelope? Quick and easy...if the envelope turned up missing - the $5 would be the least of my worries! So I dropped by the bank, got a mess of 5's and started stuffing envelopes!

Received mine yesterday. Looked thru some of the extra fabric my sister had lying around and found some metallic red vinyl. Sure, my car is silverstone, but now the footrest looks a bit like my computer (brushed aluminum with cutout red lighting mod :) )

You know the black pop connectors kinda fixed my car. When I had done my little road noise supression project I had put the carpet pad under the dead pedal spot and the pop fasteners were never long enough to securely hold the carpet in there due to the extra thickness. The black ones were long enough to not only work for the carpet pad, but also the plate.

Cool!
Actually I originally intended to use the OEM Honda plugs. I ordered 50+ of them from hparts.com - only to discover that they are too short! <D'OH!> :oops:
BTW... hparts.com is very accommodating with their RMA procedures. :D

Hi zenartist,
Yes the footrests were a pre-order item. The company I ordered them from has a 10-piece minimum. At the time of order, I ordered a few extras, but they were spoken for before I even got them in. Altogether I ordered and sold 25 of them!

I would be willing to do another round of orders (especially since I didn't get one of the new ones for myself!) - but I'd need commitments from about 5 or 6 other Insight-ers before I could put together a minimum order.

So....If anyone out there is interested and didn't get in on the first round - let me know and I'll start putting together a list for another buy!

Jim- sorry this is so late. I did receive mine and the $5 refund was a bonus. I still have not installed mine (hopefully this weekend), but the piece looks wonderful and of great quality!! Nice job.

Insight footrest

Hi Jim,

I´m writing from Germany. I´ve got one of approx. only 140 Insights that were ever imported here.

I just read about your success to organize those superb footrests. Is it still possible to get them? And would you be able to send them to Germany? Of course I´ll any extra charge for oversea parcels.

Thanks for your efforts!

Sure! I'm 'international'! ;-)
I've shipped footrests to Canada and The Netherlands (Hi Windmill!) so Germany shouldn't be any different.
Please email me directly at: jholmgren 'at' advertising.com and we can work out the details on shipping.
I don't have any extras in stock at the moment, but I do have another order placed with the manufacturer - I should receive them in about 2 weeks.
Thanks!
Jim

Just got the latest shipment in from the manufacturer this evening.

If you've already contacted me and paid for your footrest - it'll be on its way tomorrow!

I do have some extras 'in stock' if anyone is interested, please email me directly at jholmgren 'at' advertising.com or PM me here if my stupid spam filter bounces your email. :oops:

Thanks!
Jim

Footrests

My fellow Insight Modders,

I have contacted Jim Holmgren for another batch of Insight custom footrests, and he only needs one more to make it worthwhile. You can find his e-mail sight in this thread, or PM him and when he gets enough promises for more, he will arange to have another batch made up.
I think they are nifty looking as well as functional. He doesn't make much if any profit for these, and does it for enthusiastic Insight owners.
Search back on this thread, or go to his website to see how they look.
Since I have 2 Insights, I have put in my order for 2.

Rob
