This is great info as we are not yet at this point with our 31. What are you doing for steering setup? I have no idea what to do on ours yet.

   I used a Vega steering box from Flaming River,  2 shafts and 3 universals to connect it to a Flaming River tilt steering column. I will try to post some photos later.

Vega steering boxes tend to be one of the go to steering boxes for a lot of hot rods. These non-power assisted steering boxes do not require a ton of effort to steer, they are some what small (as steering boxes go), and work well for a 2500-3000 vehicle. My first car was a Vega. You didn't need a lot of effort to turn them. That's why they are still popular with builders.

'31pontiac - your fab skills are outstanding. I love watching what you come up. You are true hot hodder. Keep up the great work.

   Thanks for the kind words, Frosty, but I can't take all the credit. My brother has been a big help.
