Well Happy Birthday old man.... not to worry, I hear 70 is the new 50 :-D
Wasn't trying to confuse ya, just give you options.... to confuse you.  If I was doing it, I would make them independent like the lakester, the liner fixes spots for both legs, the lakester lets you have your throttle leg in any position you want it.

The above MUST be true, because you sure don't seem 70!

Happy Birthday! :cheers:
