Re: Rudder Pedal Mount Designs

I captured this this morning, while I was putting new upholstery in the airplane. The center line of the left pedal is 4 1/2 in. Aft of the firewall. Centerline for the right pedal is 5 in from the firewall. I don't remember why I did it like that but it works for me.
Might as well include a picture of my new upholstery as well.

While I am keeping my rudder pedal tubes and add toe brakes on the left, I needed to move the mounting points aft ... my plane was built for someone much taller than me :-)
So now I get to decide ... Do I keep the original design with 4 phenolics or do I adapt something a little different? I saw this for example with the middle to unbolt and liked it ...
I looked at Jims, Corbins and others, but was hoping for your insights. My main questions are ...
Yes I have the original plans and I am looking at those as well but I would appreciate your insights and especially your PICTURES.
- OPTION A - Do I make a plate that I assemble outside and then epoxy into the floor?
- OPTION B - Do I mount phenolics / delrin mounts straight onto the floor?
- MATERIALS - Do I use phenolics or delrin?
- GEOMETRY - What angles do I want to achieve between heel/foot, the pedals and the breaks? Looking at Matco images right now.

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
