Well, you see, one has to be prepared for everything. What do you do if if your winshield motor quits in a pouring down rain and the screen gets stuck in the upper position? (Common problem with Wings with manual screen adjustment...)
If you have a spare along, you just quickly strip the tupperware off, change the motor and you are back on the road in less than three hours...;-)
Naw...just kidding Lenny. Seriously (if you can still bear me), I'm in the process of making a power assisted seat height adjustment and I'm using an old LT windshield motor assembly that one of the board members, "varoom" (Richard Kuethe), kindly donated for this "R&D project".
I have basically solved all the placement as well as electrical issues but the system is not yet in operation. My new Russel seats are en route and currently I'm using borrowed seats for the installation mock-up. As seat base needs some modification as well and I can't start making holes in other's seats...
I also want to have the system fully functioning before reporting it on this forum. The courtesy title of "Village Idiot" is already taken and although I might be a possible candidate for receiving the title as well, I still rather leave it for the original bearer ;-)
