Got the steering wheel installed, I had to adjust the horn button contacts for the button to work, it was initially stuck on




And pulled the shift lever, beat up as I expected ( it would drop into reverse when I slid the column straight, came out pretty easy after I got annoyed and sprayed some wd-40 on the roll pin





Going to go get plates and a sticker for it today!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you don't find a nightmare of rust under it like I did mine.

Do a complete inspection of the metal when you get the old carpet and padding out. Also consider what to use for your new matting and sound deadener. I used Dynamat under a Boom Mat and it made a huge difference in both heat and sound.

im 90% confident there will be no shocks when i pull it up, the places i have removed already its been perfect. I'm not sure if i will bother to put down dynamat or something similar before i put the new carpet down.




in other good news its all legal now! plated and insured, just need some nice weather again.




i also picked up a rim to mount a spare to.
