I bet. Awesome that you figured out a simple solution to make it work!

Well good luck with the knee surgery 🤞. If not then hopefully we'll see you at Radium.

Wiring is all done except for connecting the headlights and tail lights on account of they're not there yet.... Steering column, shifter, E brake also installed along with the lower dash section holding the radio and 12V outlets. After a bunch of wigglin' and jigglin', got the HEI to engage the oil pump drive shaft and sit down in place, seems to be a thing with these aftermarket distributors ... Engine is almost ready to fire up, need to find the right rad hoses, cranking over with the key so it won't be long now...

What everyone else said; that goes double for me.

Bet you use a different steering wheel.

Out of curiosity, what does it cost to have the dash woodgrained? It looks really good.
