Need Orlando area Sakonett for dimensions

I am currently finishing drawings for the original Sakonett pilot seat. Unfortunately, some modifications have been made to mine so I'm not sure of some of the dimensions. I need to see another Sakonett with an original (or close to it) pilot seat. I could travel as far as Tampa/Daytona is necessary.

Hope you haven't been waiting for response since May, 2002.
I'd be happy to provide any basic measurement(s) from an intact, original 1968 vintage (it's now June, 2005) RPS as a check.

I used the Grafton plans some time back before there were RPS plans available. I used his plans to build my console but used the old RPS for templates.
I got hold of Mr. Grafton and discussed some measurement errors in the console plan. They made it necessary to recut some inside bracing pieces. He seemed very appreciative but I don't know if they were corrected and hope there aren't similar problems in the RPS plans.
I hope the RPS plan is okay.

I didn't realize until I checked your profile that you ARE Mr. Grafton:-)
Glad I didn't run off at the mouth.
Your console plan was invaluable.
I hope you got the console measurements worked out.
