Steering from the drivers seat

Yep, I actually have a seat in the car to steer from... Just temporarily!
More important, I finished the link between steering rack and steering wheel. I had to modify the firewall to accept a carrier bearing for the steering shaft since I added a u-joint in the system. I used the steering shaft from an old steering box to run between the original steering column and the new u-joint on top of the steering rack. It's pretty exciting to spin the wheel and watch that rack go back and forth!!
This should be a major improvement on the original and I certainly hope so for the work it has been. I am truly enjoying the process!!
