P-15 Hood ornament/mascot thingy


Recommended Posts

Hi guys - now that I am getting the paint to look better, naturally all the bright trim is looking worse. My hood ornament is very pitted, but I found a decent one on EVil Bay, spent an afternoon polishing and buffing it out, and I am pretty happy with the result. I know the clear plastic "Mayflower" ship part is available new. My question is: Were these always internally lighted (the clear part) or was that an option? My original one doesn't seem to have any bulb holder or power source going to it. Since my "new" one is turning out pretty nice, I am wondering if I should bother making it light up - especially if it was only an option and my car wouldn't have had it originally.

there is the factory lighted option...the clip is a bit hard to come by.....however, a quick trip to wally world and 2.50 you out the door with a small lamp that converts in seconds.  I long back pictured the factory lamp holder.  Maybe a quick search will reveal that pic.

Here is the thread where I described putting a 6v LED bar in the ornament of my P15. It gets a lot of favorable comments.  :)
