Things That Go
I placed the top plate over the cut off base and tack welded them together for a trial fit.

I cut a 1/4” wedge out leaving the top rolled material to hold it in place. I heated the remaining material and bent it down.
With the DBW assembly mounted over top the adapter I could judge the pedal position. It was too high and too close to the tunnel.
I could see that the pedal lever could be lower to the floor, so I cut a wedge out of the lever and bent it down and test fitted it before I welded it.
The adapter mounted to the firewall.
I used a discarded license plate as a heat shield to protect the plastic and electronic parts.
Clamped the pedal lever in a vise to heat and bent it to the left to clear the transmission hump.
Pedal height is better now.

I’m using the old throttle cable hole to pass the TAC harness through. 40mm is the required size.
First start up out of the truck. I was pretty happy that it started right up the first time, no “start the camera after I know it will run” thing.
