59 chevy tilt

hi,your right about the sleeve spacing.cutting it off helps.the columns i build have significant machine work to the upper components.it helps to have a friend who's a great machinist.i've been custom building tilts for lots of years now and it gets real interesting when you set these up as column shifts.the neutral/backup switch is on the bottom of the column so it has to be properly located.the rotating shift tube has to be given internal clearance from the mount saddle.it,s kind of tricky but i've got it figured out.i also found a perfect length lower collapsible shaft.i also have put a weld on stop tab to keep the column in the dash in the event of front impact.these cars impaled and killed more people in the day.i use 59-50 tilt/turn style knobs.your right about the belly comfort and at my age it is really more that just nice.LOL
put a tilt with a power seat and it makes them comfy for long cruises.
one other thing,i noticed you don't have power windows.i have stock sets with original regs and new switches/wiring.
nice job on your Camino!
