    Amp gauge

    I never took the wires off the gauge just left the gauges hanging. When battery is disconnected it still shows full discharge. Weird Huh.

    Amp gauge

    Had my dash out to get hydro dipped in woodgrain and when I put it all back together the amp gauge shows at full discharge all of the time any ideas as to why. Thanks Gary
  4. Like Silverdome said ask questions this website is a goldmine of information make sure you do a search of old posts first there is so much info there good luck.
  5. Thanks Brian you have been a lot of help in the past.
  6. Andy the horns work fine when I hook them up to a seperate horn button. I replaced the wire that goes through the steering column and soldered the wire to the brass t shaped thing but was just wondering about the cup that everything sits in. I will try the horn when I put the steering wheel back on I am waiting for my dash to come back from being hydro Dipped in a dark woodgrain pattern.
  7. My horn assy consists of the horn button itself then the horn ring next the brass piece with the wire in it that is held down by 3 small screws followed by the horn spring then the contact cup which on my 39 is a round piece with a hole through the center and a small lip on the edge which they call the contact cup but mine only has a small lip not a cup like it shows in the manual how is this piece a contact cup and what is supposed to make contact with it. The 38 Dodge is different not sure about the 40 any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. Recently I took all of the painted interior window trim off and sanded it down to 2000 grit sandpaper and polished with mothers metal polish and they came out beautiful if you saw it you would swear it is chrome I will post some pics soon I also did the door frame pieces and thought they came out beautiful I decided it would be too much chrome so I took them and the dash out to be hydro dipped in a dark burlwood I will see how it looks when I get them back. This hydro dipping thing is really amazing just google hydro dipping woodgrain and see how it is done you can do any pattern you want and is not too pricy they are doing my dash and both door frames for 300 bucks.
  9. Dale I tried that but all of the paint comes off and not the woodgrain part it would be pretty easy to take the paint off and polish the metal it would look just like chrome but I am afraid it would be too much chrome and look too gaudy but the old paint needs to come off anyway. I am just not sure. Rich I will give you a call in the AM thanks.
  10. Just waiting for the seat and door panels to come back from upolstry guy and have got the stainless pieces removed from dash and am polishing and painting them now my problem is the dash itself it is the greyish woodgrain and does not match the car now that it is painted the air maroon color the interior is a light tan color pretty close to original and I took the window and windshield trim pieces and stripped them and polished them until they look like chrome also did the door trim like that . What would be the best color to do the dash in and can it be done while still in the car I really don't want to take the dash out at this time or would a dark woodgrain peel and stick type product work just as well. Thanks in advance as always.
  11. Beautiful job my 39 dodge business coupe is almost done just waiting for the seat and door panels to be finished final piece of the puzzle same color paint is it air cruser red that is what it looks like you must be proud.
  12. I bought most of my parts from Roberts motor parts in Mass never had a problem and shipping was great. I bought stuff from Bernbaums it was OK just a tad more expensive..
  13. Brian b my 39 dodge is exactly the same as yours I found some nice tan vinyl material and am in the process of covering everything that was leather or vinyl or what ever that material was and am going to cover the access door with the same vinyl to see how it looks. I am having a hard time finding new grommets and swivils for the tarp that covers the spare tire any one have any Idea where I might get them. Thanks Gary
  14. Thanks for all the good info as usual I am going to take a picture of the masonite type piece I am talking about it has got me baffeled .
  15. They are in Georgia and specialize in headliners in old cars made mine up and it is beautiful you can get the headliner and the matching windlace 25 feet and had my sunvisors recovered plus got an extra 1 1/2 yards of material for $229.35. I chose the color beechwood and it is just like the original color very nice and great to deal with use my name and let them know how many bowes there I told them 5 but there are only 4 but there is a stationary one in the back so I think I will be OK will keep you posted on my progress just let me know if you have a that masonary piece back by the window. WLS headliners Hazlehurst GA 912-375-5292 check out their website good luck. Gary
