One of the worse things IMHO, aesthetically and ergonomically, about the Marina roadster is the way the steering column sits through the dashboard and the resulting rather vertical orientation of the steering wheel. On the Triumph based roadster the column emerged below the dashboard and the steering wheel was at a more rakish angle. I understand that, on the Marina roadster, this is rather dictated by the high position of the steering rack but has anybody come up with a solution to mount the steering column in a better position? As always, pictures tell a 1000 words....

As a little bit of side information, when I dismantled DRL152K I discovered the steering column was mounted using a large wooden block as a spacer! Amazing what you could get away with 40 years ago!
