Thanks Rufus. It's way more comfortable obviously but it also makes you sit up a couple inches higher which I planned around except my throttle now shoves into my thigh at idle. So I may be finding a design for it like the f35 where it's more centered and higher. Probably with a couple l brackets in the shape of a z

Yeah that's pretty close to the f35 seat. Just generalized down like mine. They even have the adjustment box next to it. Can't imagine how much that cost. So far mines about ten bucks in scrap lumber and Craigslist foam.

Borrowed my neighbors sewing machine and bought some cheap cotton sheet fabric. Finished up my seat and honestly for having zero experience with a sewing machine or any fabric work it passed my coveted "good enough" inspection. Plus "jigged" up my glareshield and epoxied it all together. Mounted up great! It's really weird how the glareshield adds an exponential amount of realism to it. It did on my f-16 pit too. On to the pics!
