Re: Another Blue Chevy

I got the stock lights apart and tried some metal polish with a gray scotchbrite and a blue shop towel . Amazingly just hand rubbing turned out well . I also replaced the passenger side lens with a Chevrolet part I found on Ebay. I have some ideas for a light socket replacement and may try a LED version of an 1157 bulb, not sure.

Re: Another Blue Chevy

I bought a pair of these light sockets . I think they will work fine for a double contact bulb.

Thumbs up Progress !

NEED MORE TRANNY & PARTS PICTURES ! .

I remember doing to 'mix 'N match on vintage trannies from the 1960's through the 1990's, it's fun and rewarding bench work .

In particular I'd like to see the gear teeth, slider and countershaft gears .

It's very nice you took it to mother in law =8-) .

Congratulations on the grand daughter ! .

Is it your first ? .

Sorry I didn't have anymore trans pics that show any internals. I took it by my Mother in Law to show her I had it fixed, She is the one who bought it for me . She says it's because a 30 model A that had been willed to me at one time had been sold by her ex husband. I say it was for my Wife and I having been married 40 years in June. I have 3 grandkids now. My Son has a boy that turned 3 today. My daughter has 2 girls

Re: Another Blue Chevy

My son and his family came to see my new granddaughter a few weeks ago. With all the new cases of covid in the state we did my grandsons birthday party via ZOOM today. Better safe than sorry , Thanksgiving will be a smaller get together this year.

Post Vintage Headlights

Oops ! I forgot to respond to this :

The proper thing to clean & polish old silvered reflectors if lamp black, art stores still sell it .

Last time I used cotton balls .

Then I tried having the old reflectors chromes and Lo ! they looked great and worked well enough to drive at night with the original 6 volt bulbs, they were 30 watt or so .

The 1157 bulb isn't going to illuminate enough to be safe but will at least make the lamps look good .

There is no shortage of original style headlight bulbs, no one wants them anymore .

'A' model F***s use the correct socket, easily available re pop .

Keep up the good works .
