I moved the driver's seat back about 6 inches now. I can drive the Moke a lot easier. Now getting to thinking about heating and moving the clutch pedal and brake pedal, to the left - it is a left hand drive car for the US - as my big clodhopper boots don't fit so good. Then, same for the magic want shifter, but a move to the right so I don't pound my leg on the 1-2 shift. Those little items would make the Moke a lot easier and more pleasant to drive! I am thinking, anyway........

anyone have any ideas on this?

Hi,
I've been thinking about how you could move the peddles and gear leaver to make it a bit easier for what you call " big clodhoppers" and the only thing I think that should help spread the gaps between the peddles is to modify the bends. This might raise the height of the peddle though, but just needs to be sussed out a bit.
Same with the gear lever, 2 bends low down might be enough to give a little more room around the drivers seat.
Would still look pretty right too ( Except there on the wrong side :wink: :D )
Just a thought :)
