Steve,
I am in the middle of a thrash to be enter the salt flat racing arena in October with Dream Catcher. Nothing else matters now except being there at World Final's 2006. The switch repair looks like I chose the right product. I will get back to it after my name is in the record books.

Re: Ignition Switch

Three years and still waiting to see if the switch came out OK. Would like to hear if the bike performed at the Salt Flats. Mostly just checking to see if all is well. Call me curious I guess. Steve.

Re: Ignition Switch

From Pa. to Davenport, to Ut. Now that is a trip. Do well and be safe. Will wit for an update. That switch repair was a good idea and I hope someone will try it again. Bakelight is tough stuff to work with. Lots of that in old electrial stuff.

Re: Ignition Switch

I was real impressed with the quality of the Eastwood repair material. It adhered very well to the old Bakelite and sanded smoothly. Takes some patience with emery boards or nail files to smooth off the new material, but with some dye or paint would be hard to tell.
The trip from pa to Wendover is done by a bus which transports trailer, streamliner, tools, spares, pit supplies and 4 people. It can be viewed at ironwigwam.com.
