Jay posted a pic of a heavy duty steering column support awhile back. Here is the one I have. It is a different design, but still is a heavy piece. It will work on a thick wooden dash board or on a thin steel dash board by reversing the gold colored clamp. I have two of these so this may be the one I use on the speedster.

clamp 3

Nice accessory! No holes to drill and these really do stiffen up the steering column.

The APCO brace is the most common one of these accessories you see and is the one that's being reproduced these day's.

Jay: I see you have one of the handbrake extensions, I thought about using one of the extensions instead of bending the handbrake. Are there any problems with them, and are the repros sold thru Macs as good. Im going to move the handbrake outside on the speedster and Im thinking of using one of the repro extensions.

Donnie, Mine is an original. I really like it on our 15 roadster. It puts the handle within easy arms reach. The only drawback is that the handle needs to be removed to lift the floorboard out when working on the bands.

Here's a past thread.

This support is from my Duncan & Fraser roadster.
The top is bolted to the curved timber to which the cowl panel is fieed. The blackwood dash board is independent of the bracket,and sits forwatd of it.steering bracket

Jay, thanks for the link. Ill probably have Langs bring one to Chickasha. I think it will look good on the speedster, and make moving the handbrake outside of the body easier ...

Donnie, I think you will be as pleased with the unit as I have been.
