    I do note the use of CAD (Cardboard Aided Design) in your fabrication. Good job.

    Looking great Justin, any reason you can't use a VE steering wheel and have the controls in the wheel?

    Re: VE Torana

    If i used the VE wheel then need to change the column and that in itself makes more headaches (mounting points, steering shaft to rack , lengths diff) and also then i would need to do something with horn pad as not wanting airbags. this way easier and i prefer the look of the Momo wheel
