I never liked the rudder pedals flopping around so I contacted Fernando Abasola (airbuspilot) on the forum to see where he got the springs on his 8.
He said he had them made up at a shop in Chile and he was having a set made up for another 8 and if I liked he would have a set made up for me. Well, I liked and he sent me a set at no charge. The people on this forum are amazing for their generosity. You can see Fernando's original post on the springs here,(I hope) http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=42143
Thanks again Fernando
