If I were doing it again I would install the new crossbar before cutting out the old one as I think it would be easier especially on a slider. No chance for fuselage to change dimension.

There are several installs at KLMO just north of Denver if anyone wants to look,sit,fly.
....The new cross bar cannot be installed without removing the original.
If one were to do this, the new one would not be in the correct place, and
most of the engineering would be wrong. Thanks, Allan

Default Aviator seat compatibility

Anyone know if there is any issue with the Classic Aero Aviator seats with this mod, since the seat backs are different? I have the mod (not installed yet), and just ordered seats. Would like to know in case I need to modify my order

I have the same seats. They fit fine. I removed the striker plate on the back that rests against the bar and turned it upside down so that it rests on the bar better. 5 screws as I recall. Mine is in the full back position. When u install yours u will see that it rests on the fabric above the striker plate. Simple fix.
