Re: Mystery Electrical Parts

I think I have found that the first picture is a receptacle for accessories as well. Aftermarket I am assuming.

This is a British made park light that went on the window.

Mystery Electrical Parts

Hi, I hope someone can identify these 2 parts. They were in a box with some of my other dash parts. Not sure if there even for the GTE!

Hi Martin, my car #2677 has the shorter 3 hole blind. It is off the car so I can measure anything you want.

Re: Knob Paint Removal

Sorry Tom, I didn't see your post, I used Simichrome as I assumed the knobs were Bakelite. I will try polishing with some plastic polish and see if it is better.

Re: Knob Paint Removal

Thanks for your input John. 👍 That is exactly why I am asking as one google suggestion was to use paint thinner and fine steel wool. These parts are far too expensive to experiment on... :P

Knob Paint Removal

Hi, can anyone tell me what the console knobs are made of for a 1961 GTE? Are they Bakelite?

Mine are covered in paint :shock: and I would like to get them cleaned and polished again.

Any suggestions on paint removal and polishing after?

Thanks
