My solution probably won't work for you as I failed to remember your wings are already covered. I created a slot from the bottom side of the rib to insert the aluminum plate and plan to Hysol and rivet it in place - which requires access to the entire rib. This post from another thread on this subject provides a reasonable solution for wings that are already covered. Look at the next to the last post by wypaul http://www.avidfoxflyers.com/index.php?/topic/1061-broken-flaperon-pivot-point/#comment-4
Tonight, I'll post some pictures of what I'm doing with my MK IV. I'm using a single piece of aluminum flat stock and had to Dremel a slot to insert the flat stock into the rib (beyond the tail). Saw pictures of someone else who did this the same way, but can't find the post.
This post on TKF may not address your specific concern, but it explains how moving the mounting bracket back changes the rudder pedal angle and makes it easier to stay off the brakes (see post #32). It seems somewhat counterintuitive, but actually makes sense and for a good solution. I have long legs and my knees will still be in my lap, but I believe this approach will help keep my toes off the brakes. And there's lots of other good rudder pedal info in this post. http://www.teamkitfox.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=508&highlight=Pedal+geometry
I had to remove all of my MK IV false ribs (both wings) due to the aluminum leading edge being a real mess. With a heat gun and patience, I was able to remove them all, clean up the spar and then put them back in place. A taut line from wing tip to root made placing them back at the correct height pretty straight forward. And then I replace the aluminum with a thin veneer of plywood.
