How many have added the hat shelf and removed the old cardboard bulkhead. Did you gain that much space for luggage and general storage? It appears to come out from the mounting lip the bulkhead attaches to and turn rearward projecting several inches into the fuselage. how far back does it go. Also I have a 1969 B with rear seats on plywood and shoulder restraints on for the front seats. If I remove the rear seats I can only raise the plywood platform to the bottom of the shoulder restraints. Has anyone modified this in any was as to be able to fully raise the plywood so as to not be standing on your head to get to the battery and other items under the back seats.
