I’ve been thinking that the rubber grips on my turn signal stalk and tilt wheel lever where just about the ugliest things on my roadster, so after work today I fired up the lathe and came up with something more pleasing to the eye. Just cosmetic, I realize, but certainly more satisfying.
The column is out of a Chevette. A previous owner had shortened the signal stalk and bent it away from the steering wheel, so every time you signaled a left turn the stalk twisted counterclockwise and and on went the wipers.
The engine is a Ford 2.3, so this car was apparently the original hybrid.
