  1. I went to Michael's for everything. Batting and fabric.
  2. I ordered floor pans from him last year. The quality is excellent and he is really nice. He does have issues though getting parts. Also, if you are looking for floor pans, I would do them myself. While the quality was great, they were nothing I anyone with the skill to install them could not make themself.
  3. I unscrewed the rocker trim from the back but later realized they came off so easily because they were rusted and just broke off. I'm pretty sure that strip of chrome is supposed to snap off. I bought these clips to reinstall the trim (https://www.ebay.com/itm/175417284714?hash=item28d7af586a:g:86EAAOSwZdNjIyBW&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAsCI7CCnSU2PN11i8KYMQqfyxfQckamhZQX4B6Wl3RLMek9oB4xkG%2FwZgDYACt02iw9zzNoID4wMsvv37d8Zwobt66jP95MiCx3lr9PBpB%2BPlZREDmWdHm4OzUGLHHI2HNY3Ez0eUHFxSX68H42WO6pJB4SwCk1hWSq4FEUkoch5qekiuHsKbT8sOy%2BUzHUZDbftBbOUITdGlM6RRpGPf1ILc8UDyh6MflNv85B9Ci6jZ|tkp%3ABk9SR9iG9ueFYQ) Although I think I paid around $30. I tried test fitting them onto my trim and they hook on the top and snap in on the bottom. I assume that is how they were originally meant to work. Regarding the bumper trim, do you mean the grill bolts? Mine broke and I used quarter twenty screw clips to repair them. Here's a pic.
  4. Looks great! Is re-chroming expensive? I tried getting all the rust out but I'm having a tough time.
  5. I found some more info on another website: "The switch spring contacts on these get dirty and can wear, the contact pin on the balance can wear through often cutting it in half, with a service and new contacts these clocks run quite well." I can see that pin and it is pretty dirty. You can't see it in the pic but in the last one I posted it is right at the tip of that horizontal blade looking thing in the center. "Also a lot of these movements don't self start, usually there is some flip spring attached to the hand set knob which needs to be pushed or pulled before the clock will start and run." That must be what that push button thing in the back is for.
  6. Yes, it is a Jaeger Watch Company clock. I am scouring the interwebs looking for a schematic, exploded view, or explanation as to how this works.
  7. I see some corrosion around this shaft. I have looked all over and don't see any points like the one pictured above.
  8. I'll post another pic later. There is a push button like plunger thing on the back plate of the clock. I think it pushes that copper arm. Does anyone know what that is supposed to do? Also, what is the function of the "F - S" dial? It seems to tighten the spring.
  9. Oops, you are right, solenoid. My brain goes to transformer anytime I see lots of windings.
  10. I decided to try and fix my dash clock hoping it would be something obvious but before I get too far down the rabbit hole, I figured I'd post here. All the gears and springs seem to be intact. The transformer looks like none I have ever seen. I'm guessing that is my issue? I tested it direct on 6 volts and it does nothing. It may just be better to stick one of those quarts battery operated ones on the back. Should be good for a few years.
  11. I used these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017UBHQS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I made my own door cards. Drilled the appropriate holes and pushed these through. I think I have a picture of them either in one of my threads or on my phone. I'll send it to you if you like.
  12. So funny. I was there last year and took almost the same pic. That restaurant was awesome.
  13. I did, and I confirmed it was pumping before I buttoned everything up. That's a good idea about layering. I'm going to go do that tomorrow.
  14. OK all fixed. I put JB Weld on each end until I come up with a more permanent fix. I really appreciate all the help this forum provides.
  15. Yeah, I could have sworn I just read it. And I did. I know what to do now. Thanks
