Just realized that I did not show the finished steering wheel set up.

 

gearstick position not finalized may need extension removing and/or stick modifying.

Always been wondering how to treat the steering column. 
 

as I had a spare dropped it off at the local machine shop to do a better job of removing the end.

 

YouTube gave me ideas for what to do with the finish.

 

a job for next week as I am busy in Corsham this weekend.

Well it’s been a few weeks since Stanford Hall show.  Last time I was there must have been over 20 years ago.

Ready to set off
