The steering is much easier to operate now with the extra gear reduction installed.
You have to crank the steering wheel around around more to make turns but that is also a lot easier to do with the wheel setting more in front of the driver.

I LOVE IT, Ray !!!!!!

(Except for the off-center headlight. --- I lean toward symmetry)

It's truly a one-of-a-kind work of art.

That is great to hear Ray, the goal has been achieved :thumbs:
Looks great and much easier to drive now with the steering remounted.
