2018/08/22 - Steering Column

I opted for the telescopic steering column. Partly because I wanted it, partly because the donor came with all the parts. More on the telescoping portion in another update. This is the steering column install only.

I used a grinder with a cutting wheel to make all the shaft cuts. Most of this was straightforward grunt work. So far, the manual is sufficient. Just barely, and you have to read things twice, look at the parts, read twice more, find random parts called out and hope you grab the right ones, THEN do the work. But no major corrections/changes for me to point out.
