1988 Suburban TH-700R4 to SM-465 Swap. - Nov 18, 2009

Photo 1 shows another problem I had to unexpectedly deal with at the near last minute, the lower bracket that retains the steering column to the firewall. I hadn't noticed until getting ready to re-install it that the threads on the left stud and nut had stripped, I decided against re-tapping the nut and running a die to clean up the stud threads- but made the extra effort to remove that stud and weld a new one in it's place, similar to what I had to do to the pedal support bracket studs.

Photo 2 shows the end result of today's efforts, the entire driver side interior part of the job is finally finished and I can move on to finally work under the Suburban and get this project wrapped up.

Photo 3 shows the driver side interior as finished with both the shifter for the transmission coming up from the floor, and the shifter on the steering column that needs to remain for now for the reverse lights to work, until I get an afternoon in the future to do the electrical modifications needed to fully use the reverse switch in the transmission for it's intended purpose.
