    I bought it on eBay. Look up dune buggy steering rack. Also Stilleto Steering rack.

    Looks pissah! That's sharp as hell with the exterior as is- good call!
    Thought I might see you Sunday, but it was muddy and wet and was over by 9- you didn't miss much.
    Hard to believe we'll be Joisey bound pretty soon!
    If you ever need an extra set of hands, mine have been rebuilt and are working pretty well.

    Keep up the good work, mon ami!

    Porsche 914s have a very short rack, with pinion in the middle and at 90 degrees to housing. I think most 911s and 912s are the same. Not real cheap on ebay, but I've seen them low priced at swap meets and Craigslist.

    What size tubing on the cage. Wall thickness? Points of contact? You’ll never pass tech at Loring. Hahahah it looks great.

    Nice work, Dad, looks pretty sinister. That first shot looks like some kinda hot rod shop or something? '40 Ford coupe was my first car ( at 15). Love it. Almost time for sun block! The count down on on.

    Looks like you'll need soft tires and a thick seat cushion, but hey, at least the road trips will be short!
    You continue to amaze me with your abilities. Whatcha gonna name this one?

    You never cease to amaze, Ray. Yet another awesome TROG build. You're going to have so much fun. From the looks of your Instagram account you've been burning the midnight oil this past week. Your belly tank is killer!
