Hi Steve,
It's to fit a GTD kit car, the current column I have is a dolomite but it has been butchered to fit an awful removable steering wheel kit, Just need a standard column, no shrouds or switches or steering lock

OK, I'll try again! Is your old column the rake and reach adjustable one or a fixed one, both are fitted to Dolomites but the mountings vary so you'll need the matching one.

Steve,
I don’t know. It’s not adjustable in the car but does that mean the mechanism has been removed? Not sure. Will take a picture and post it here (will be next week now)

Not quite sure how I happened across it, but I found an ad on ebay for a column which stated that it was suitable for a GTD kit car!

It appeared to be the rake and reach adjustable type, though the adjustable bit had been deleted. It was also £75! I can do you one for about 1/2 that!
