Hi all,

Thinking of converting my Space Lifts from RDS to LDS, can anyone recommend a good off the shelf system? 

Cheers,

G

Thanks guys, exactly what I'm looking for.

All I've got to do now is get the old servo trays out without damaging the wings!

I've done this a couple of times recently (both Freestyler 3s) and I am not holding this up as a definitive installation but I put a few notes together. See attached. The end result is very good indeed.

Did you epoxy the LDS directly into the RDS pocket?

It will depend on where the pockets are positioned , both horizontally and vertically to the linkage, but it is unlikely they will be in the right place.  The hinge point of the linkage in the surface must be as high as possible, but not quite protruding above the top of the wiper.  And of course they need to be exactly the same height above the hinge line for symmetrical throws on L & R surfaces.

LDS system ordered.

 Don't want to decommission one of the Fosa's just yet, I'll take a couple of pictures of my progress for the Baudis conversion once the Jedi Lift arrives. Should be next week:D
