Fitting out is the nice part of car restoration

When these cars arrive the years of rust and old paint jobs have to be removed entirely before we can even think of a repaint and then refitting.

New Lucas horns? no they are now about 48 years old but cleaned up well in the bead blasting cabinet.

Type Lucas 6H and model TPAR 545 and TPAR 512.

They are a matched pair with a hi and a low tone, making a very strong sound, later Imps came out with just the one horn to save money, thats how mean Chrysler became in the quest for a higher profit.

Mounted in their box, the original rubber grommet and Lucas colour coded wire, its purple with a black tracer, are fitted and the horns are ready for use again.
