    Marlon,
    here are the pictures of the brackets I designed for Gary and I. Gary only required new inner and outer side brackets get the length he wanted and he can still use the rear stick with his seat all the way back. I wanted more leg room so I lengthen the side bracket even more which required a support bracket to the aft of the seat slide. I also build longer bracket that attached under the seat which gave me an additional two inches. I think I've got about 9 additional inches of leg room, however, the back seat stick is no longer functional. If you have any questions call me on 425-417-7943.
