    Another little project that popped up was when I got frustrated swapping Formula rims for GT rims and having them at the same angle.
    My solution was to take a motor out of an old electric bed (purely because of the weight and strength of the motor and gearing) and make a platform so at the press of a button I could adjust the angle in seconds..and it looked pretty cool :D

    That is cool. What do you do about the seat position/angle? Wouldn't that ideally change also?

    That would have been the next project but I moved away from the rig design which made it harder so never did anything else to it.
    As I look back on some of these things I think I will start to look at new ideas again.
