If anyone has seen the new Hot Rod this month,there is an article on a number of companys offering R&P conversions. It is really well done.
Got to thinking about the antique "taffy pull" that is the Avanti steering set-up. Just for parts to rebuild all the old original stuff& replace all those hoses,I don't think you could get by for under $700. Then ya still have pre-war stuff( I'm talkin' Nam!) Makes R&P pretty atractive. Anyone tried?

Hi, BillsR2,

Suggest using Search. There have been many threads here where a R&P in a Stude has been thoroughly discussed. And by the way, price those Hot Rod parts; $700 won't get close to a professional R&P installation. An amateur installation may work out fine, but most have serious bump steer issues and some are flat out dangerous.

thnx, jv.
