I spent the day today fabricating parts for the VW steering. I then mocked it up to see if it looked like it will work. I am thinking that I need to get the engine and transmission in next. I may then have to remake the steering bracket. Only time will tell for sure.
NOTE: I wound up not using this type bracket. Instead I fabricated a bracket that bolts directly to the frame of the car. I wound up removing the two rivets that secure the brake line bracket to the frame and using those holes to secure that VW bracket rather than the plate and stock mounting holes. More on this later.
