I'm sure the procedure would work for that also.

It's still 76K per limb...

I had a good friend who was 13" taller than I. I'm telling you that guy never ever had anybody give him any lip (or me when I was with him).

He was always scrunched up in cars, through doorways, in theater seats, etc., though. My old Lab would run, hide under the dining room table and shake whenever he came over.

I’m 6’1. And that seems to be about the edge of comfort for things like beds, chairs and sport bikes.
