LOLOL, I always laugh when I see a bodyman at work after welding a rad support in give it a little tug with his hands. Yep, it passed the test.

Well it looks cool none the less.

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.
