So while the car is gone, I am working on cleaning up the engine, but felt like a change- working on something different. Decided to mess with the original Bosch horns. On my last car, Miss June, I cosmetically restored them, including the badges which had been paint over. This time, I am documenting the process!
Secret method: Thumb nail! Yes, I start by removing the tags and then carefully with my thumbnail work the oversprayed paint off of the tag, leaving the original markings. I then polish and wax.
Yes, I know that reproduction horn tags are available, but they are the wrong ones for a 356 C. They should be as shown below.
Pictures below show a restored horn from Miss June, and the tags I am restoring for Miss April. So far, so good!
