65 Falcon Van Mustang2 IFS Conversion - Page 2 Empty Steering Rack/Brake Booster/Steering Box/Column

Hopefully will get some sort of a steering box mount fabricated in the next couple of days and determine exact coupler for lower shaft/rack input connection.

The new "Ford-in-a-Ford" lower control arms are definitely the ticket for me as the rack shift made a much easier path around the brake booster.

Very close to finishing this phase of the resto.  Once satisfied everything is good, I plan drop the engine/trans, to roll it out, roll it into the shop, and remove all of this recently added stuff and start on body work.  

If I primarily focus on the underside, there's a slim possibility I could have it rolling with new engine later this summer.  We'll see....

Without steering rack boots, easy to see extensions
