Brass Headlamp Restoration

Recommended Posts

Who is the best at repair/restoration of brass headlamps and taillamps? Does clear coating the polished brass hold up over time?

 

Thanks!

Rick Britten of Britten Brassworks is the best in the business. His phone is 269-979-3928 and he is is Western Michigan.  If it is done right, clear coating will last for years, however, you never want to clear coat a brass radiator because of the heat factor.

Thanks for the reply! I just heard of Rick Britten today and will have to give him a call. You mention in your reply that the Packard is available? if so, please send a PM. David

I would agree that Rick Britten is the best for repairing and polishing brass.  His work creates objects that are like jewelry, absolutely beautiful. 

 

This comes at a price, of course, and I know people with LOTS of money who have been taken aback by cost.

 

One gets what one pays for......
