As promised some more install photos.
Now remember there is no welding or cutting of anything to install this kit. Unbolt the stock steering components and install the new kit. Ever want to go back to original unbolt and reinstall stock.

Good pics on another R&P install on a C1. I'd like to see Steeroids begin using real tie-rod ends with dust boots and zerk grease fittings on both ends to increase service life, but I understand the need to have something adjustable. If you still have the car in your shop, you may want to unclude a couple pics of the power steering pump installed also, since its included in a few of their kits. Wondering if you had to dumb down the fluid pressure at the pump to reduce twitchiness also. You may want to link this thread to the C1/C2 forum as well, since you've got install pics & there's probably at least a few guys on the fence whether to install this kit on their ride this summer.

Thank you for comments. The car is gone the owner is out having fun, driving it with the top down in the beautiful Florida sun. We certainly did miss the pump. I can tell you it fits perfect on the block it uses a KRC mounting bracket and a C5 TC power steering pump and fits perfect. Comes with a nice chrome pulley and overbraid lines. In the second set of pictures and the second pic you can see the back side of the pump. This kit makes driving these C1 so much more fun. We did not have to adjust pressure on the pump no twitchness at all. Now we did not take the car over 70 MPH on the highway. On the next instal we will get good pics of the pump have another one coming in. Not sure how you link it I know cars better than forums and puters

Thanks

No experience or explanation with your product / picture ... Is the outer shell ( column with VIN ID ) used with your components ? Didn't see a reference.

" Uses none of the original parts " ........... All I want to know is if the original steering column will fit properly with the remainder of the components...... I am aware additional custom columns are available. If you change the column what do you do with the cars identity tag ??
