Thank you.

Thanks to everyone who answers and helps when I cry out.
I took this photo last week close to my home on the Rim Of The World highway, perhaps it can serve as some inspiration for those up to their elbow today.

GTC toggle switch knobs

Hello all, I'm in need of the toggle switch knobs that are on the center console of a GTC, they are the round type sometimes called Mouse Ear or Ping Pong Paddles. I just started to look on-line, but perhaps someone could short cut me to the best source/quality/price. I need all 6 as mine are cracki...

Re: Voxson radio nuts needed

Thanks for the link, I just found those too, but I had already bought a tap and made 5. I modified a US standard 1/2-13 nut, retapped it and faced it down to the desired thickness. I’m lucky to have access to a small lathe.

Re: Voxson radio nuts needed

Thanks for the reply John. I’ve contacted two radio shops so far, a Blaupunkt guy and the guy that did the restoration, no luck. Does anyone know of a Voxson specialist? It’s not a common thread, McMaster Carr does not have any type of nut with that thread. I thought they were called panel nuts too ...

Voxson radio nuts needed

I bought a Voxson 8 track but it is missing the knob shaft nuts that secure it to the console face. They are mm13 x 1, and about 3 or 4mm thick and 17 ATF. I’ve extensively searched the web and they are not readily available and are difficult to cross reference to other radios. I know for sure the B...

Re: Wiper motor removal

Aha! Thanks Kerry. I got it out, but the end of the crank pin on the large plastic gear got chipped so I be looking for the part. I am hoping since it's Lucas it should be available.

Wiper motor removal

I cant seem to get the drive cable loose from the drive socket in the wiper motor transmission. I assume its like a speedo cable with a square drive. I have wiggled and pulled to no avail. I thought it would just slide out, maybe I need to get tougher or is there a secret? Thanks, Tom Martinez from ...

Re: Gauge lighting

Peter, nice work hunting those down. It's hard to tell exactly why the LED I bought won't fit because I'm feeling around in the spaghetti, I wiggled, jiggled and pushed but could not get the bulb into the gauge receiver. It feels like a diameter issue rather than a length. The diagram with dimension...

Re: Gauge lighting

I doubt that you will find a LED bulb that will fit into the gauges. I bought some LED bulbs for the side marker lights that said that they would fit per the bulb number. When they came, the base was correct, but the bulb diameter was too large to fit into the receptacle. Since the gauge bulbs are ...

Re: Fixing holes in the glove box door

Here's some photos of the dirty deed, to add insult you can see staining and lack of natural fading from the brass shield. I tried to blend the discoloration with some light abrasive and that's when I perceived that it had some type of finish rather than raw wood. the back side of the door definitel...

Re: Gauge lighting

I carefully measured an original bulb and the fitting that pushes into the instrument and it looks like it might fit, so I bought just one to see if it will work, I should get it next week so I’ll report in as soon as I’m able.

Re: Fixing holes in the glove box door

I believe the teak from the factory is unfinished -- there is no clear coat or any other coating. It's just raw teak finished with teak oil. Watco teak oil (available at Home Depot) is excellent. You can treat the plugs with teak oil to get a feel for how well they will match the dash. Hi peter, th...
