Default RV-12is Improvements in a RV-12

Has anyone installed some of the "many" improvements made to the RV-12is in their RV-12?

* New throttle quadrant design
* Quick reacting electric flaps
* Quick adjust seat back feature
* New cup holder
* Dual USB power outlets
* New transversely mounted fuel tank
* Improved canopy latch design
* Cockpit handle on panel
* Stick grip options for trim control, PTT function, AP disconnect
* Dual Landing Lights
* Improved steps

The bottom 5 are definitely retrofitable.

The rest (except USB ports) would be challenging to add to a ULS fuselage.

Main landing gear seals per KAI 38iS/U-10/11

This would make a nice retro-fit kit, for those of us not wanting speed fairings.

I installed the dual USB ports on my panel and a Tosten stick grip with PTT, ident, auto-pilot disconnect, and pitch trim on it.
