Getting more room/shoulder destroyer.
So, I was originally planning on just moving my seat inward a bit to get my upper arm to stop trying to occupy the same space as the t-post but it looks like that puts the throttle pedal at a pretty awkward angle (even worse on the 300TDI, what were they thinking?) so I was thinking the correct fix might be to remove a section from the t-post itself and welding in a thicker stiffener plate to gain about an inch of space right where they intersect.
I still have nerve damage from hitting the B-pillar in the D2 offroading but since removing the plastic cover and getting extra space it has at least not gotten worse.
Is this something anyone else has tried to fix? Wish I'd considered it prior to galvanizing and paint, but it seems it would be in a location that would not be too bad to cut and weld even at this point.
