    Yep Frankenstang got my old steering column & wheel from my 87 that where just taking up space in my garage. I upgraded mine to a tilt column and the sexy 3 oval/ SVO style wheel. Just for general knowlege this wheel was avaliable in Capri & Mustangs 84 - 86 not sure what other Ford products.

    I passed up one of those in the jy because i had no clue how rare/expensive those had become. I hate myself.

    I think I may have changed my mind on how I want to paint the car. I think I'm going to do a **** load of body work then get it painted professionally. Either gloss black or some kind of blue. I'm thinking maybe Twilight or Sonic blue.

    :scratch:

    A Sonic blue Mercury Capri... :drool:

    Sonic blue is nice but too loud for my tastes.

    May I suggest a similar but more understated shade, such as Toyota's Blue Ribbon Metallic or Chevy's Arrival Blue Metallic

    Toyota:

    Edit: removed picture of chevy because the color is way crappier than i remember it from when i worked for a chevy dealer back in 02-03. The toyota blue is still sweet.
