Re: Ididit Inc.

I want to put your keyless ignition in my Chevelle. I am using one of your columns that I bought for another project in my 69 Chevelle. Since the 69 has the ignition key in the column I will need to use a different kit. Which kit would you recommend. Thanks Edd

Hi Uppster,

Is the chevelle a 69 like your other project? You could purchase the push button start that is already installed into the column or you could purchase the kit seprately and install it into the dash. We can always remove the iginition from the column before ididit sends the steering column to you.

Re: Ididit Inc.

Brian,
Im have purchased a replacement column for my 1966 Super Sport Chevelle and got stopped when I took it out of the box that the wiring connector is a flat GM connector yet my Chevelle is a curved connector. Do you sell an adapter kit or is there some type of instructions that you can provide so I can install this great looking piece in my Chevelle?
Thanks in advance for you help ~

Hi Tom396,

There is a wiring adaptor sold seprately because we don't know if the customer is using their original wiring in the vehicle or replacing it. The part number is 3100037542 and can be order through us directly if you call or any of our dealers across the nation.

Thank you,

Re: Ididit Inc.

Hey Brian,
I have a quick question about your columns. I'm looking at purchasing a floor shift column for a '67 in your "black powdercoat" finish. I'm wondering if the black is gloss/semi-gloss/satin etc....? It's hard to tell from the pics online.

Thanks!

Hi NorCal-55

The steering columns are a semi-gloss black but we can powder coat the column black for an upcharge.

Thanks

I talked to the guys when they were set up at the MSRA show in St. Paul a few weekends ago. They didnt seem to intrested in the idea because shafts are all different for the many makes and models. That makes sense to me but I can tell you this. I know about 15 guys in our club that would buy a column from you guys in a second if it meant they could either re-use thier stock steering shaft or use one made by Ididit if it matched the stock appearance. These street rod style borgeson style joints just look way out of place under the hood of a stock restorations or restorations that are close to stock. Add a bunch more guys here on TC as well as other forums and If there isnt a market for that type of product, ill eat my hat.

Re: Ididit Inc.

Hi ChrisR,

I understand keeping the original look and maybe Borgeson will eventually make original looking joints and shafts but currently we purchase what they machine. If we were to make our own we would need a division just for that purpose. Defiantly a possibilty but for the moment we are stuck with using aftemarket designed joints and shaft.

Thanks,
Brian

Semi-gloss sounds good! Thanks for the info.

Re: Ididit Inc.

Hi Brian,
I have your chrome, tilt steering column in my 1970 El Camino. I'm very happy, but I do have one complaint. The return spring in the key ignition is VERY LIGHT. When I first put the column in the car, I thought it was the wrong spring and ididit tech told me that is a "common complaint" but it works fine. It is so soft that it feels wrong. I don't like having to "get used to" something that feels wrong when the column cost over $1k to purchase. Are there any other issues? Not really. I have had the horn go off when I put the left blinker on, but that has not happened again, only once. Overall, it is bitchin, but why can't you get a strong return spring so it feels more normal? For Tech to tell the customer they understand because many customers comment about that, but you'll get used to it...kind of sucks.
