I removed the entire front plate on the brake pedal so the rubber pad would fit correctly

If that is the case, then you can remove the rubber cover from the auto pedal and grind off the welds on the front part of the pedal and remove the wide piece of steel. What's left is a narrow brake pedal for a manual.

Not sure the year. I did the frans kit. I will inspect the auto this afternoon.
