We got a nice lil' package in the mail: an all aluminum rack & pinion steering rack, designed for a dragster, but that will suit our Salty Bomb just fine, thank you !
Allways great to get that kinda mail !
After we did some mocking up, we decided the tank had to be lengthened by 40cm, or some 15 inches for you Imperial thinkers.
Harks Staalbouw did a good job rolling a couple of pieces in the right curvature. We did the cutting after clamping some sliding tubing to keep everything in shape during the stretch.
Now we should have enough space to occupy the driver AND all important parts !
