Steering ??

I am in the process of building a pro street opel GT. I am getting ready to put in a steering column. I have looked at different columns and different ways. I am at a stand still. I would like to keep it with a drag race style of column ,but how would i do my turn signals. Or is there some other column that could be used . Anyone had this problem with this type or size of car.
I am going to hook everything up to a mustang rack.

If you want to use a "drag race style of column" you can get an accessory turn signal switch that will mount to your column.

Total Performance has one:

There isn't any rule that says your turn signals have to be on the column. Several comanies make turn signals that use toggle switches you can mount anywhere.
