After the great response to the cabin heat thread, I have another issue I could use help with. I can not reach the carburetor heat knob from the rear seat. I have a pot belly and can't stretch far enough unless I let everything go, loosen the seatbelt and lean way forward in a scrunched position. Which needless to say is not something I feel good about doing.

I am sure that I am not the only one who has that issue. How did you solve the problem?

Thanks for all your responses on previous threads, the info has been most helpful and informative. Not something I can get anywhere else!!
