You know, really dumb question just occurred to me after the fact.I agree with this ^^^ fortunately for me I will not have any dash. All I will have is a dash bar connected to A-pilar bars off the halo hoop. As long as that is squared to the body and firewall I’ll be good. From what I can tell the steering wheel only had to be moved over to passenger side about a inch. I’m thinking about making a post over in the “build” section keeping a step by step of what’s going on.
Have you had the body off the frame yet? Years ago when I was in the northeast there was a gbody that had so many rust damaged body bushing frame mount areas that almost nothing was holding the body shell to the frame. It got hit on the side and the thing tore clean off the frame. Wasn't my car, but I saw it. Frame itself looked OK from the side/underneath because the rails rotted underneath the rubber bushing. Could see after the fact where many had collapsed though.
Couple that with all the flat washer repairs you see here on the site, I would believe in a passenger cabin shifting on the frame more than the factory welding a column mount off by an entire inch.
If column/shaft was firmly attached to gearbox, and gearbox was on a straight unbent frame rail, but the body shifted, that could make the bracket tweak and appear at an unnatural angle?
Just a thought.
