I would mark it INOP.

I removed the factory switch and replaced it with a double throw sustained (non-momentary) switch and relocated it to the front panel.

Much easier to use and access. It also freed up the center for an armrest console that I built.

Has anyone installed the F-12132 headset brackets from the 12iS on a legacy 12? Seems like they'd be handy.

Default EZPZ

A buddy gave me a pair of the F-12132 headset brackets. Took me awhile to figure out where to mount them in my classic 12.
I was investigating the 12iS KAI to see what it would take to add the egress handle to my build. I happened to notice the brackets on Page 29iS/U-08 (rev 1) in SECTION 29iS/U: FWD UPPER FUSELAGE.
Easy install - identify & drill out two rivets, bracket holes line up, pull two new rivets.
The only "issue" is that I have dual screens (no map box). So on the passenger side, the clearance between the bracket and the under panel map tray is a little tight but hanging the headset (at least my DC's) is doable.

Default A Simple Vent Handle

I added handles to my vents to make them easier to grip. The removable spark plug caps came in handy.

Default Rudder Pedal Mods

Anyone got anything better than the typical "bolt a 4x4 to the pedal" option. Looking for a way to "move/rotate) the pedals closer to the short pilots (both sides) feet.

You can replace the OEM pedals with longer 3D printed parts. I published a set of stl files in different lengths on Printables.com. Carbon fiber Nylon is a great material for strength and heat tolerance. I think you can also buy them from RV Plastic Parts. I have been running a set of 1.75 extensions for a few years with no issues.

Updated Pictures!!! Did a fit check yesterday on a flying RV12 ULS and it worked like a champ. 3" standoff on the ones you see. Will go fly with them tomorrow and report back. Will also get photos mounted on the plane. They were rock solid on the fit check!!!
