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.
Steve, The switch was swapped for something I needed before I finished the repair. I leave August 27 for BUB and will stop at Davenport for a day on August 30, September 1, the pits open for BUB, My crew will be meeting the east coast contigent at Wendover. Rocky 1957S/VG
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.
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.
