Got the steering shaft all pieced together and welded. And installed. No binding at all. It’s tight but has just enough clearance to allow for motor movement.

Pretty damn close to coming out of the shop and hitting the streets

Wow. It appeared he spent more time on here than anyone.. I always thought he would be the last member standing. I hope he is ok.

Just finished up the build thread.. I am glad to see the Cragar SS wheels are still in the mix... In my opinion those wheels made the truck stand apart from others. Amazing job as usual. :drool:
