Help with Wingsuit Modification Can't Post

So hopefully this is the right place to look for help with this.

I am looking to extend my Phantom 2 by about 2". I am just over 6" and the suit is made for someone just over 5'10. I can fit into it and fly it alright, but I have an incredibly hard time pointing my toes without feeling stress on the fabric across my chest/uncomfortable amounts of pressure on my toes.

I live in Madison and am willing to drive/ship it somewhere if it can get done in a reasonable time. I have a new set of booties for it too and since it is winter I have some money in the ol' bank account. (crazy, right?).

Please pm me if you can help or post here if you have any suggestions for me.

Thanks!
Adam

The rigging loft at Skydive Elsinore has a great deal of experience repairing/modifying wingsuits.
Chris Warnock (Parachutist on DZ.com) has a fair amount of experience.
Pete Swan in Lodi probably has the most experience of everyone combined.
If you're looking to extend the booties, it's not horrible. Much past that gets into heavy time (and $$).
