This is such a classic bonehead move that I think it deserves its own separate post. I was taking the roadster out for a test drive, and when I got out to the road I found I couldn't shift into high gear.
I didn't take long to figure this one out
Never done that with the floorboard, but I have taken off after maneuvering the car in close quarters with the lever straight up, then couldn't figure out for a second why the car wouldn't go into high.
Maybe Henry designed it that way so you can have a training mode. I couldn't make that mistake with mine because I still have the original floorboards with the packing crate cross braces which would be very noticeable.
It would be fine in Australia as in the first photo it is upside down. Good parking brake movement though.
I made sure that I can not do that, as my floor board is primer on the bottom and OD on top
The problem is Obvious.
Perhaps there is an emerging market for a new improved floorboard? One that will never make the owner feel like “Did I really do this?”
Thankfully your fix was a lot easier than when someone pushes on the low speed pedal and finds the car backing up after rebuilding the rear axle. Thanks for brightening up my day.

Steve is always finding a BETTER WAY!
I use a wooden block in the brake handle slot during parades so it will not go into high gear by mistake.
All Steve needs to do is turn the floor board over.
Been there......done that. At first I thought something broke.....then I got my head out of my you know what!
Hap, nice photo editing to show the improved floorboard :-)
Sometimes I wish that a few features my computer has were available for my life. I could sure have used a "do over" button. Especially when the kids were little or after finishing working on the car and noticing a left over part that wasn't an extra part....
