    Default Unobtainium Supplies: 330GTC & 330GTS stalks restorations

    I just restored 3 330 GTC and 2 330GTS column switch stalks, thought you might like to see them.
    Restoration for each stalk consisted of:

    • Removing all remnants of the old pivot (switch) end, including any epoxy, hot glue, etc. from failed prior repair attempts.
    • Thoroughly cleaning the stalk's chromed metal stalk rod
    • Casting a new pivot end onto the stalk.
    • Cleaning & polishing the petal knob.


    The polished petal knobs are wrapped in soft white tissue to avoid scratches during packing, shipping & reinstallation.
    The the 3 stalks on the left are the GTC wiper, turn & headlight stalks, the GTS turn & headlight stalks are the 2 on the right:

    Restored customer stalks.

    I think this weed I restored a record number of stalks as I also restored a couple of black shaft 308 QV stalks this week but didn't have a camera handy. Tried to get a 330 GTC headlight stalk finished for a customer in France but had a last minute problem.

    I'll be making some new stalks later this month, will post pictures.
