Before chroming it i threw it on the pavement a couple of times. i thought it was gonna crack or come apart, I checked & it looked good. After I installed it I hit with my palms pretty hard. I know its not an osha approoved test but its been strong.

First it was just to see if I could. Then I installed it on the old van. Been driving for 3 months. I have to say that I love it but It may be because I built it and the sense of self acomplishment. But I am getting a bit tired of the attention at the drive through. Sometimes at the gas station, the same question. "where u buy that steering?"

Im Ok with it, I learned a lot though. Thanks again for the good comments.
