Lol, very innovative Numb. Where there is a will, there is a way! Maybe we can or someone can start a thread titled " show us your rig and I'll show you mine ." Maybe I can put mine on here when I get around to taking some pics with the Digital.

The thread I linked above has over 5 years worth of custom wheel stand posts and ideas, so there is no need to start another one. A good idea is still good no matter how old it is.

Sorry. I was on my mobile and did not see your linked thread. maybe because I didn't use FULL layout of the forum. So skip my suggestion. I'll even go have a looksie myself.

Hey L. B, looks like you did a quite a good job on your set up. Simple and effective. Good job!

Heck, hellsoul you can even go see what your neighbourhood Pick-a-Part has to offer. Maybe you can find a nice driving seat there for alot cheaper than what is online. Give it a look over.

Thank you!!  I had a vision in my head how I wanted it to look before I started with a few minor modifications over the years.  I play GT5 for hours on end, even now with the game over 2 years old.  So I had to have a nice comfy seat to sit and everything else had to be at a relative natural and comfortable length.

 

The one thing I ended up liking about the design I came up with, is the seat to be it's own section.  So if I do want to play some other game, I can seperate and move the wheel, pedal, shifter section off to the side and still sit in the seat.

What's cool about the phone I bought is that if I put it in FULL I can see it as I do on my desktop.  Like right now I am at work typing this.  I can now see your link and any others.  Lol, so I did feel pretty foolish after the fact.  So believe me that when you post a link next time it is mentioned, I will switch over to FULL.

At the moment, however, there doesn't seem to be a Lithium way to go back to Mobile.

I have asked for this to be fixed, but that was a while ago.

well i kinda figured it out, my grandpa is a avid racer and he has made a GT style wooden cockpit and he has two so i asked for his old one and he said sure, but its is extrememly heavy to move around so we're gonna have to strip it down to its frame, but still it should be useful
