Default Rear Seat Solo Mod

Listers,
Andy Johnson has been swamped with requests to see photos from his RV8 rear seat solo modification. Andy is a bit Internet challanged. I offered to post his photos up on this site, as several members expressed interest in the idea.
Stephen, Chuck and others commented on this in the FOR SALE thread that Andy started here:

http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=49686

The moderators may wish to consider moving pertinent sections of that thread over here, if they feel it is warranted. Andy sent the comments below with this batch of photos.

Chas,
Here are the pics of the interior showing some of the changes we made. You need to be clear that this layout is for a very long legged pilot. I think the pedals could be moved to behind the spar carry-through for a shorter guy. Might be a problem with getting the legs around the rear seat if too short, however. It would require mock-up to be sure.
Andy















Ed note. Links were broke. Did my best to correct em.
Charlie

There's only one link. Gives an error message from VAF Forums.

Apologies, I thought the hyperlinks for the embedded pictures were the issue.

It looks like the origional thread may have expired, but here's a partial google cache

Thanks for the Google cache (I had no idea you could do that) and extra pictures! 6'6" myself. Wish I'd seen this when the ad was up.

No problem, sorry I couldn't find more - I read the thread when it was up so was able to remember some terms to search in google. Unfortunately as best I can tell google didn't happen to cache the other two pages. The origional thread may still be accessible by a site admin depending on how the software for this forum is setup.
