Restoration of our classic car horn was basically a simple process.
The first thing you need to do when attempting to restore a horn is check it out electrically. If it can't be restored functionally there's no sense in going to all the trouble cosmetically. Obviously, that means connecting it to a battery or charger and listening (ear plugs might be a good idea in case it works!) for any "life" in the old unit. We did so with our subject horn, using a battery charger. It made little bleating noises, somewhat like a lamb from 100 yards away. That meant a restoration was possible.
tim: Mark my hood is complete and you are welcome to examine when you come over to Michigan. Also, the chrome strip or stainless stops at the rear of hood. Does not go to the windshield

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)

Kerri Davis: It looks like you've misspelled the word "accross" on your website. I thought you would like to know . Silly mistakes can ruin your site's credibility. I've used a tool called SpellScan.com in the past to keep mistakes off of my website.
