Nice work Damien, it's good to see another using steel frames. I was wondering if your centering device is going to be in the way of the TQ/console. I thought I would show you what I made as it would work on your set-up too. Two screen door closers pull the yokes to neutral with the air bleed screws controling the speed. It really works well and it's good to hear the hiss when big pitch movements are made.

The clearance is fine with the center console, a few things i need to do still.
I am not 100% happy with the way the yokes return to center with the gas dampers, i was lucky enough to have them in my garage so i used them.
I never really thought about using the screen door closers and will be looking into this option for a more stronger feel (and the hissing niose )
But as far as the general feel of the dual yokes, i am happy.........
