Break-Away Steering System

Figured I'd go ahead and post this, since I never did when the parts were actually installed.  I managed to get my hands on the break-away style steering shaft setup that Volvo switched to towards 1968.  Basic concept is to not impale your chest in the event of a front end collision.  The steering box got new bronze bushings and oil seals, and the shaft bushings were replaced with IPD polyurethane.  The shaft setup is painted with Eastwood Extreme Chassis Black, which I used on most of the suspension and have been pretty pleased with. Still need to finish up the horn wiring.
