    I hate to be that guy, but would you mind posting the measurements you took? Yours looks a LOT nicer and customizable than most all of the other 80/20 setups I've seen.

    For that cost you could have sourced a mustang floorboard and sliced down to fit :)

    Sure, give me some time to re-draw it and clean up the dimensions a bit.
    Here was the original "plan" to chew on a bit in the meantime, however.
    All of the fasteners need to be revised, as I went a total different direction with most of those compared to what I thought I would do originally.

    Got all my stuff up and running but fighting through some issues with my wheel base (may be USB 3.0 vs. 2.0 related). Once I get that licked I will move to solidifying my setup. However the VR demos and the limited amount of Project Cars 2 that I have been able to play are VERY cool looking.

    OK, I re-arranged some of my USB inputs and added a powered, external USB hub--that seems to have cured my hardware issues! Screwed around with Project Cars 2 a little last night and this morning, will load up iRacing in a couple weeks after some work travel...

    Looks like fun!

    I'm pretty sure 80/20 is a euphemism for expensive af, although it should make for a really nice sim rig.
