Ford F250 Steering Column Follow Up

The Shortened shaft reassembled.
Ready to weld. See previous post.
Welded in multiple passes.
I had already reassembled
the shortened steering
column when I found
out it was too low
The Mounting bracket
removed and the remains
of the spot welds ground

Here's how the column hung
after shortening
You can see that the angle of
the steering column isn't right.
Too low.

Blair 3/8" spot weld cutter.
The only to cut spot welds.
The 1/4" pads I welded in place to
lift the column up. With a sander
I contoured these a bit before welding
the mounting bracket back on.
