Managed to get a little assembly work done today. After stripping and refinishing the steering column, I reassembled using a new bearing and harness. Also on the shaft I sandblasted it clean and then applied KBS's Direct to Metal Clear. Seams like good stuff, hard as nails. I only wish they made it in a flat finish.

It is amazing how much all those little new parts cost when you start adding them up. Though it does seem foolish to have the metal looking better than new and putting in beat up used wiring and components.
