A Message from Our President

 

The month of May will be filled with fun gatherings and car tours. Tim and Janet Lange will lead us on a tour of the Fowler Theater and I can’t wait to see this gem! I know you will enjoy it too. If you get hungry, you will want to join Harold and Jo Williams on the Covington Beef House for lunch on May 17th. This is always a great trip with a reward of great food if you make it there without a break down. We will also have a very special presentation at our May meeting with Bob Jacko presenting about restoration of antique radios. I know a few of our members have had radios restored, so this will give you an idea of how that was done! We hope that you join us for another month of great outings and gatherings.

 

Motor on!

LIHAC President

Tech Tip

 

 Brake lights are hard to see in daylight on most of our older cars, especially the ones with glass Lenses, I had complaints about that on my 1951.

I found that a third brake light can be installed on cars with 6 volt systems even if they are for 12 volt if LED lights are used, these are available on line fairly cheap.

If you have turn signals, a separate wire must be installed at the brake light switch for this to work.

LED lights only work if proper polarity is observed, as being a diode currant will only pass one way, most old cars have a positive ground so you must treat the metal on the car as your positive wire.

Ebay has them so shop for the model you want.

Install in back window. 

Remember Safety first.
