For a simple rudder trim, put a spring from the right rudder pedal to the bracket on the firewall. Adjust the spring to get the tension you want and it will take the place of a tab on the rudder. This worked great on my RV6. I started out with a spring a little too long and just kept cutting it shorter until I got the tension I wanted. I got the spring at Home Depot for around a dollar for a package of two.
(You really don't need any adjustment on the left pedal.)
If you want it adjustable, just hook the spring to a vernier control cable or some kind of lever allowing you to tighten/loosen the spring.

Default N357RV finally painted!

I have been flying since Oct 1, 2005 but I finally got it painted! It's like having a brand new airplane again! I couldn't be happier, everything came out better than expected. Colors - Jetglo Flag Red, Acryglo Phantom Gray, Acryglo Titanium all on Jetglo Matterhorn White. Just in time for OshKosh! See you there!
