    Headlight and panel light switches.

    I have a 37 Chrysler Airflow.

    I tried fixing the interior panel light switch yesterday and wasn't successful.
    The top is warped and not making contact. Now it doesn't work at all. The
    headlight switch is also on its last breath.

    Does anyone know where I can get good used or NOS switches, or someone that can
    rebuild them? I'm getting kind of desperate. Maybe someone has rebuilt theirs
    and can provide guidance?

    Thanks!

    Ilya

    Got any photos of the switches you need? Some of us have different switches lying around without knowing what they are.

    and visions of my past old cars....

    Yes a photo would help. I get unboxed stuff from dealers and I know there are switches from that vintage that a visual Id would be easier.

    I'll get pictures from under/behind the instrument panel. I'll try to remove them for better pictures, but don't want to disturb more than I have to because they're fragile.

    I should have pictures done and posted this weekend.

    Thanks!

    Are these switches the "BAKELITE" type? Has anybody had any success repairing / rebuilding this particular type of switch? More interested in the bakelite material as oppssed to the actual "metal" part of the switch. Thanks!
