I previously mentioned some parts of the Mk5 were borrowed from the Mk4. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I simply used the 2” x 6” seat base and fold-out legs for the steering wheel table, which had been painted olive drab in the old rig. If the seat looks too far to the right, you’re not wrong. The adjustable base actually shifts the seat further in that direction, so it’s necessary to mount it further right in the cockpit to have a central seating position. Also, I wanted to leave a bit more room for the six-speed shifter to mount near the door.
