It's not my engineer who specified the collapsible column. I applied for an extension of the modification approval with the Dept of Transport here in W.A. and it came back re-approved but with the an additional requirement of the column - which was not present in the original approval. I did phone them and try and discuss the point of ADR compliance and got shut down very quickly. It was their way or the highway...

Any plans on what column you're going to use?

Barina columns have been done a few times (a good thread here) and there are some aftermarket options that look very nice, but are also quite expensive.

I haven't discussed with my engineer if he's happy with the current column or not, but I'm considering the barina conversion, since it's probably safer, and my wife would like power steering.

I will be using the Toyota Starlet column that came with my front cut. I will need to shorten the column (but still retain the collapsible structure) but I'm not concerned abut the lack of power steering.
