Default RV14 Throttle/mix/prop

Has anyone repositioned their RV14 throttle/mix/prop to either a center pedestal or sidewall application (like an RV 8)? If so, pics and any early considerations you recommend would be great.

Happily DONATED for 2021. I meet more than one of the exemptions but feel this site is well worth the donation. Hoping other will follow suit!

Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, experience usually comes from bad judgment.RV14

This builder put in a center throttle quadrant on his RV-14 to match the one he put in his RV-10.

I noticed the flightchops machine has a centre mounted throttle - in front of the arm rest but I haven’t seen any more info other than a quick photo in the last video with Elliot Seguin.

It looks like this one but they don’t have any install details nor say what quadrant it suits.

Looks cool, I'm sure removing the floor pans/center panels/fuel filter will be a joy come inspection time
All these great mods make maintenance much more difficult, which often translates to it never gets looked at.
It's not bad enough you have to take out the CB panel to access the fuel pump/filter, but now you have to remove entire center console/control quadrant too.

Unless they went with wing root filters or the external access gascolator? (Either of which is probably mandatory if you went this way). Does the fuel pump need inspection at the annual or just the filter?
