I had so many people ask me if the steering wheel was going to turn when you move the wheels I figured I might actually see if I could, here is what I came up with, started with an aluminum block drilled a couple holes turned a couple pieces and found some small gears out of a watch, seems to work!

Bill - that is outstanding. I don't know what else to say. Looks perfect. Does it work as good as it looks?

Bill.... this build is flat out beautiful. Those headers look awesome.. I can't wait to see more of this build. Is your front radius rods made from tubing or from rod. I see it looks like you crimped the ends flat where the bolts go thru. Keep up the great work
