Work with me here. What does the wire do? I always hack it off with a swazall, clean it up with a cookie wheel and hit it with Bondo,

Oh! That's just to stabilize the screw/patch. It kept wanting to tip/cock to one side. So I used the paperclip wrapped around the screw to brace everything so that it stayed where I wanted it. It was removed with the screw.

I was concerned about JB Weld (or bondo in your case) getting down inside the column where it could/would cause problems. I have enough problems, I don't need to invent some new ones.

Actually Bondo is your freind if the collar locks ti the main body. Remember, a G Body has no provision to get the key out unless it is in the "Park" position. So locking it down is a good thing. Even the neutral safety is done by a very simple detent system. The old A bodies were a totally different setup as even the 4 speed columns used a lever in reverse to remove the key 69 and up.
