Cool Any interest in a tutorial on a column swap?

Just finished a Frankenstein column for my 62 due to needing a new turn signal switch and the 62 switch not existing anywhere. Went with a 67 column in order to use a standard GM turn signal switch. Whole thing cost me $200, but I also replaced the switch, wheel hub, and rag joint at the same time. If this piques your interest, leave a comment and I will put together a basic tutorial.

Do you mean the lever isn't available or the little plastic cam inside isn't available? Because the cam is definitely still available and made for several vehicles. Here's a link to the cams on ebay for future reference.

Either way, I'd like to see the write up! Especially since it covers the other parts of the wheel too.

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.

Specifically the plastic part and the contacts. Mine got hot and melted down, so I didn't have much left to compare it to, but LMC didn't have it, and anyone that said that they did wanted to sell me a universal one, which was not a viable option. I chose this because the 67 and up switches are cheap and available at parts stores. I will post a write up in the replies later today. It is mostly from memory as I took few notes, but I will endeavor to make it as complete as possible.
