Don Racine has a LHD gas pedal/arm with a Hopkirk pedal for sale on facebook. Look in the group "Classic Mini Parts Trader USA" .

"How can anything bigger be mini?"

When you say upside down,do you mean the larger pad area is uptop? I cant see how that would help and if you mean put the pedal pad pn the bottom i cant see how that would clamp/hold. Pics?

best solution I found was mounting the Paddy Hopkirk pedal upside down.  I dont care what it looks like (as evidenced by what I drive) just care about how it works.

Ive seen those pedals but was nervous that it would just make the gas pedal get in the way when braking lol

I sat in the car lastnight and didn't really think much into it,but im guessing the pedal being longer puts it closer to the floor which would actually help i think. Maybe that and some slight bending of the pedal rod and it may be ok.

Im still tempted to cut both the clutch and brake and move them over some lol

Gas pedal extension have been around since the 1960's, I guess they had the same problem.
paddy Hopkirk has had his name on one for years- good thing you asked before lighting the
torch !

I have a LHD mini. And jesus i forgot how bad the gas pedal is. They seem to be high up which makes your toes bend towards you,and the pedal is far to the right. Drove my car around for the first time in a long while,and my ankle was cramped.

Anyone have any decent ideas before i start cutting and welding?
