Supposed to. Circled the option on my form and paid 80 pound for it

Not the end of the world, I can fab up. But I'm gonna have to guess a little on exact location

Spoke with Ian. Mis understanding on my part. It was set up for a 90 box. I'll be retrofitting the p38 box looks like

Will leave more room for plumbing and a stronger box anyways. Just need to mod a few things to make work. Doesn't look too difficult

Well its been way to long since I've made any progress on this... but finally got some items on the list crossed off

I installed my power steering box and lower link off a RRC, which went it very easily.
The steering tub required some fabrication, mainly a lower bracket to hold a bearing, lengthening the steering shaft with a weld on piece (3/4-48 spline end). I felt like everything on this wanted to fight me for stupid reasons, but in the end I'm happy with the result. Also made a gasket for the steering column out of some soft 3/16" rubber.

I had the last bits of my suspension line-xed once i knew they would work. Put in new poly-bushes as well and got those put in.

Next up is getting the power steering pump mounted into the engine and lines ran to the box. Then i think i have to tackle the rear tub/battery box etc so i can start wiring. That should only take me into 2018 at this rate.

Nice, although I"m personally not a fan of the rough surface on those suspension parts - will trap dirt.

Can you share the part # on the bearing you used? I went and did something very stupid on mine and used a linear bearing and didn't realize it until it was all done (and bracket galvied!)

It's not perfect though. The body of the bearing carrier is larger than the bolt pattern of the column flange, so you have to have just the right size bolts to connect the flange without pushing out on the bearing on the other side. Also the material needs to be thick enough to tap so you don't need a nut on the other side of the flange. (I used 5/16 steel plate)I couldn't find any bearing


As for the line x. I had them use the premium finish which is shiny and almost like a pvc coating. While it's still textured it's not nearly as gritty as some cheaper rattle can bed liners. I think dirt will easily come off with not much more than a hose. My main concern was durability and ability to keep things from rusting. I don't think there is s better product out there. Paint, powder coat or otherwise.
