Has anyone ever fad a rim blown horn strip reconditioned? My 73 horns work but the rubber activation strip does not. If so where did you get it done. Thanks.

Never heard of one being rebuilt. They are now making repop for the 69 but not the 70-73 as of yet.The only difference between the 2 are the ends on the wires that hook up to the steering wheel. Your best bet is to find a NOS one. Look to pay around $150 for one.Good Luck

I have a NOS still in the box rim blow switch for a 70-73. It is brown in color. If you are interested I will sell it to you (for less than an auction price!) Please send me a private email.)

You have to be very careful installing these cause if you pinch them during installation, you can permanent "turn the horn switch on". What I do is before installing, I hook up the wire leads, turn on the key, to make sure the horn does not sound. Then, I know that I am starting with a good switch.

One other thought I had was to make a custom switch on the reverse side of the center pad. That way I can get to the switch quickly, but retain the stock look. I like the broken rim blow horn switch cause I do not accidently sound the horn when I turn the steering wheel, as I used to do before the switch cut out.

NPD now carries a repro for a 73, $144.95. It just seemed like a lot of cash consideriing that it probably costs about $10 bucks to make, one piece of extruded rubber, two strips of copper, and two wires. Oh well what can you do. Thanks for the replys.
