I can't claim to be the best planner when it comes to putting a car together. Often times I get a certain look or type of part stuck in my brain and I insist on using it even if it isn't what is easiest. When it came to the steering on my Model A coupe project, I wanted to mount my steering box through the frame and use an old Hudson box I had. Problem is the box looked like it had been underwater for half its life. I even went as far as welding a custom flange on the box and all. I had the box and column mounted in the car, but as I've been getting further into buttoning up the suspension and steering I still had this old box that was locked up and I realized that my drag link angle was far too extreme and would cause some serious bump-steer when driving it. I knew I needed to get a different box, and also get the angle corrected on the drag link.
