Default Gas peddle & footrest escutcheon 's

Late '31 Coupe. Does the flat side of the gas peddle & footrest escutcheon's go up or down. Thanks

I am just sort of a regular guy and new to Model A's. What is an Escutcheon,
if all else fails I can use the word at our next Club meeting.

Escutcheon is a fancy word for the trim piece that goes around things like the window crank handle, etc...

I thought the gas pedal had a rubber seal nailed to the floor board with 3 tacks? What dose the escutcheon look like? Or are you talking about the foot rest base?

Actually Both Ed. The one on the left is the accelerator floorboard cap that covers the rubber grommet and the one in the middle is the footrest mount. Sorry I wasn't too clear on my question. The one on the right is what I found in a box of parts that came with the car. Earlier foot mount as I understand (?).

Rusty,

The foot rest base plate flat side points to the accelerator pedal, or to the left side.

according to Section 11-8 Judging standards revision 2016. Edited to add that the middle one you pictured is correct based on my mid-1930 but with flat side to the left.

There is also a thin rubber washer that tacks for the actual accelerator pedal as mentioned above.

The foot rest base on the right with four screw holes is for the early Model a's

Thanks Kimeccles. Guess it's time to get some updates on my 1989 Judging Standards. My section 11 only goes to '6'. lol
