We talked about altering racing suits a while back and Joe Timney STRONGLY recommended that I send mine back to the manufacturer for mods. Doesn't take a brick house to fall on me!
So I just got the now-too-short-for-anyone-else pants back from G-Force. They did an excellent job and the whole deal was $40 (their minimum labor charge) + postage. It wouldn't have been much cheaper to do them locally and they look absolutely factory. It took less than 2 weeks from initially mailing them out until they showed up on the front porch this AM. So just send 'em in.
