Triumph TR6 - Accelerator pedal

This falls into the category of a really dumb question, but it's certainly not my first, nor likely my last. Does/did the accelerator pedal ever have a rubber cover like the brake and clutch pedals? I've not seen one on any parts list and it's been way too long since I had a TR before to remember if the pedal was bare metal. Thanks.

No, the accelerator does not have a cover. The reason is for safety, so your foot can side easily off the accelerator and over to the brake.

Ditto Doug's comment. Funny thing is that when I got the TR6 this year & had it inspected for license & registration the guy wasn't going to pass it 'cause "the rubber pad is missing off your accelerator, buddy." I couldn't convince him otherwise so had to go home & bring back the shop manual to prove it didn't have one. My TR4A also had the same pedal. Makes perfect sense to have it bare metal doesn't it?
