Steering In The Right Direction
In old days, putting your steering gear could be hit and miss.
A matter of grabbing what was available and trying to make it work together
in a way that would keep you from getting wrapped around a tree. Today,
steering solutions exist for any problem you can think of.

is a Flaming River stainless steel tilt-column.
Another great solution is this Wizard Fabrication offset steering

easy to shift gears without taking your hands off the wheel, which you may
not want to do during high-speed cornering (or dodging shopping carts at

rod. It looks like it was made for Speed Warehouse steering wheel.
The control unit for the MasterShift paddle shifter is located
under the floor next to the framerail, but can be mounted most anywhere.
