Post pics of how you secured your steering column

Title is what it says, need some pics on how you guys are holding your steering columns to the base of the firewall.

Was thinking of using a big ass hose clamp and a tab to get it done, but didn't want it to be weak

What column are you using? Cj style has a 2piece plate that bolts to the floor. Could you not use that or something similar in design?

I have a column from an early 70's GM/Chev car in my willy's, and i've never seen how anybody else has mounted their column. I was also thinking of using a plate with two half-moons, one welded to the floor and one that bolts to that, to clamp it down.

Never thought of using an exhaust clamp, that would work pretty easily, and wouldn't be hard to implement at all
