Re assembly of a 15,mil + roadster. Does the steering column flange fit interior to the firewall, or engine side of the fire wall?
The stock location of the steering column flange was on the passenger side of the firewall. However -- you can do a speedster anyway you desire -- just secure it safely. Note there are several discussions about the different steering wheel brackets that fit on the frame and how the impact the slant of the steering column. See: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/18479.html
And many folks use a wedge under the bracket to frame to lower the wheel even more. (The Australian body makers used that on the cars they bodied for sale down under.)
I hope that helps answer your question.

Chuck, you have probably thought of this already. Be sure to check the pitman arm clearence when you lower the column. Had one in the shop the other day that when you made a sharp right turn the drag link would jump up over the end of the pitman arm. Could have had dire consequences. Have fun, be safe, KB
