    PA-18 Adjustable Seat STC for PA-12, Fit & Clearances???

    Good morning,

    I have a PA-12 with the fixed/rigid front seat and am considering the STC for PA-18 Adjustable Front Seat. My question relates to the amount of front seat legroom gained, and then the stick clearance in the back.

    Will we gain any additional front-seat legroom, and if so, how does this aft seat position affect forward stick travel due to rear-stick contact with the back of the front seat? Or is an offset S-shaped stick part of the mod for the back seat?

    Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Additionally, we are currently on wheels, but thinking about a set of straight floats to go underneath.
