Here in Chicago, the guys at "Service Above And Beyond" do that somewhat regularly, and I gather it must be competetive. Figure the price is higher, but cheaper than replacing the car. To do it oneself doesn't seem impossible. Stopping me, personally, would only be the step of welding in the hardware to support the pedals. (A complete replacement, as the pedal rails are totally different.) Hope this helps, Ben
