In this month’s web exclusive article, we took and installed Lokar’s emergency brake pedal, floor board gas pedal, and brake pedal. These items dressed the interior while in the engine compartment the steel braided lines and stainless bracket stream lined the engine compartment, bringing in reliability and performance. Now follow along, as we add the final touches to our Impala using Lokar’s American-made billet accessories.
