Sprite seat back rake

Upland

Being somewhat vertically challenged, when I get the seat in position to comfortably work the
the pedals, I am a little too close to the steering wheel. I tightened the two bolts on the seat back
that adjust rake as far as possible, but still wasn't satisfied. So I removed them cleaned and cut about a 1/4" off each, threaded them up to the stop and got an improvement in rake. Not much, but an improvement.
