NEED to ad copilot to PZ T-28

Hi guys, I am rebuilding a PZ T-28 and would like to put a copilot in the back seat. Has anyone done this before? I have looked everywhere on the T-28 page and couldn't find anything on this. Could you guys give me some info on the installation of a copilot............. Thanks WALLY HAPPY FLYING

You gotta carefully peel up the canopy, then find a light dummy that's the correct size and put it in. Foam Safe CA will work because it's odorless, or tape

Here's what I did. Modified the pilot backrest/seat and made a new one for the observer/co-pilot. Made this out of scrap foam - pink or otherwise. Used a brass tube dipped in some silver paint and made "instruments". Pinhead dipped in paint for status/warning lights. I used 5 minute epoxy for pilots and seat. I then glued canopy back on with Formula 560 canopy glue. Hope this helps. I got a upgrade kit from Park Flyer Plastics which has a canopy, pilots and new cowl. Only used the two pilots though - canopy came off without too much effort.
