Ya killin me SC00P

Any way small update

Employed Alien Auto Columns to make a column for me. George's number is 0438324661 and was very helpful. This is one of the first ones he has done that is both collapsible AND column shift auto. In line with my build requirements of making it look original as possible there is no PRND locator on the top and has a straightened EK shifter to fit the FC wheel. PRND advice is via my electronic reader connected via the ALDL (OBD) port.
The column itself is HK auto bottom and EK top end (in primer so I can scratch it to buggery while trial fitting). Torana uni's at this stage but may be hard pressed to acheive the angles with the rear mount rack  Shocked

You sitting down?
Price varies on what you want. Mine was more custom and so more dosh.

You need to supply HK and EK auto columns so depends on how much you pick these up for as well.

Nes ,Just wondering why the EK,FB column , or is it just the coffee pot . At one stage I ran a EK coffee pot with a FC ,FE shifter welded to the butt of the EK selector so as to clear the steering wheel . And yes you will probably have to recess the top uni. into the fire wall . I find the neatest[laziest] way to do this is to use the cup shaped cover off the end of a side plate starter motor [ if you have a dead one lying around] . Cut the small dome off the top and grind it out large enough to slide over your column so you can use it to mark the floor plate . Keep in mind the pedal clearance at the floor [fire wall] and the extreme angle of the uni .  CHeers Haydn

In all seriousness prob owes me 2g. When you buy a good EK column then a mint HK auto (anyone want a green wheel HK?) then pay shipping etc it all adds up.
I think George has done a really good job and I am very happy with the outcome.
Fatboys quote is standard 1200 for the mod after you buy the two columns and send it to Alien and that is only for a collapsible - mine is collapsible column auto shift. George can advise how much depending on what you want to achieve -George's number is 0438324661.
Considering you can buy an ididit column for 7-800 and is only collapsible OR non collapsible auto shift then trying to marry an FC wheel would be difficult.... then uni's wiring blah blah blah where I just wanted it done properly rather than trying to modify any steering component that the engineer would have kittens over.

Here I have the best of both worlds, collapsible AND column shift auto AND the FC wheel looks in it's place,
engineers happy Shocked I'm happy  Grin Grin most importantly, WIFES happy  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Hayden, Used the EK column as the shifting mechs are similar and easier to mate. I know the uni angle is going to be tight too. Can't pull the column back as there will be the shift gate to fowl on the pedals inside the car. I deleted the inhibitor switch from the column as well as there is one on the side of the gearbox in a VT  Wink Others may have to consider this (and the PRND pointer on top the pot) if they want it done.

JOX515, it's going pretty slowly mate. I am in training for another position at work at the moment and it's quite intense. (Radar) Air Traffic control gets tricky at the best of times (No comment required JB)
I've actually been pretty naughty while waiting for my next car to arrive and ended up with a grandpa spec unmolested 5L V8 VT Calais in really good nick ridiculously cheap (yes she condoned it but only cause it was so cheap) cost less than the bloody column and its registered Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked.

Small update, I attempt at being creative but no where near what Pete can do.
Put a curve in the H bar that runs accross the car so the tailshaft wont fowl on it


Yes I cleaned the welds up. No I won't show the tack welds either
