XJ TDI Swap Part 3: The Donor Car and Pedal Fabrication

Before you build a roll bar out of duct tape and push that donor car off a cliff, let’s make sure you have all the items you’ll need from it! We’ll talk about the crucial items to remove from the donor car, as well as the fabrication of a throttle pedal bracket, and getting the clutch and brake pedal assembly set up. Since my XJ is a 2001 automatic being swapped to AX15 manual trans, I had to add a clutch pedal. I could not find a donor clutch/brake pedal assembly from a 1997-2001 so I had to turn to some fairly basic fabrication to make an older assembly work.
