I have just set the steering column in the bucket we are building. My question is, where does the column collar bolt to on the body? Does it fasten to the dash or is it on the firewall?
It looks like it attaches to the dash. Any help is always appreciated.

Thanks

you have to build a metal bracket under the dash to support it.. the fiberglass will not last and will crackout.. we are at the same point you are on our car, and we do not have a good plan yet...

I attached the drop column to a angle iron,than drilled a hole in the dash and used a chrome button head bolt and nut to attach to dash.

i did mine the same way, cut a piece of angle iron, bolt the column drop to it, then bolt the angle iron to the dash. any place that i had to bolt anything to the fiberglass, i put a rubber washer in between for a little cushion. hope this helps ya..
