Headlight RIMS for 24 DB available?

Recommended Posts

Guest

The headlight rims on my 24 DB are significantly cracked. Is this a common problem with these cars? Does anyone know if reproduction rims are available somewhere, or if the rims are repairable? Thanks, Gus

Several ideas -

1. There are no reproductions that I know of for DB headlight rims. However, you can have new ones spun out of brass and nickle plated.

2. I have seen repair articles in Skinned Knuckles that suggest using silver solder to fill in the cracks. I know some restorers who have used this method, and didn't need to replate because the solder can be polished to blend in.

3. Donald Axelrod - Headlight Headquarters specializes in all things headlights 1914-1939. Phone 781.598.0523 in MA.

I have seen several headlight rims at all the swap mets I have attended. I have bought several for $20 with the glass lenses. All need plating but are in good condition. I don't want to part with my spares but go to the pre-war swap meets and you can find them.
