Just a heads up for anyone who is considering purchasing a Ididit steering column. Please bear with me I’m a little annoyed. I called Ididit and built my column (on paper) with them. They do not sell to individuals, so they had one of their vendors call me to finalize the order. So… that was 23 May 2018, I was then told it would be 8 weeks (that’s right 2 months). I called today and was told it would be another 2x weeks. I’m not so worried about it because the car is still in the body shop. I’m more annoyed that a company specializes in steering columns takes 2+ months to get it done, but can take my $ the same day it was ordered. I have a Flaming River column in my Camaro and I should have just ordered from them. I would have had it in 2 weeks.

END STATE: Don’t bother with Ididit unless you really like waiting.

UPDATE: I spoke to Dereck at Ididit yesterday. He is now telling me August 10th (not a guaranteed date). That's 12 weeks (3 months) to build a steering column. At this point I really want to cancel my order, but... The car is still in the body shop.

Why didn't you just go with a G-body tilt column and be done with it? I know Ididit makes some trick parts, but you also could've gotten away cheaper. Just my $.02.
Find a nice factory column, paint it to match, and tell them to shove the column where the sun don't shine.
