We won't, however, try to weld our mild steel mounting bracket to our new stainless steel tilt column. Instead, we'll screw it in place with No. 10-32 screws, external tooth lock washers, and Loc-tite. We measured and laid out the mounting bracket in the same location as it was on the original column. We then did a little bodywork on the original button welds of the bracket, drilled three new holes just for the screws, and tapped the threads in the column. Don't forget to slide the dash cluster escutcheon onto the column before installing the bracket.
