Welp... The cold weather and cash has slowed me down, but i did make a electric steering column out of a prius. Don't want all the hoses and hydraulics. I still have alot of cleaning up to do and make a few custom brackets, but came out good and looks factory.

I'm running a electric water pump and supercharger, so the pulley system is a little difficult. The way i figure this, I'm only 100 bucks into it. A lot of people do the conversion and like it, but I'm not a lot out.

Use a Toyota Prius column and you cut down the old factory column to put them together. Gotta get the ecu for the column as well. 3 wires run it.
