Re: Combo switch

Don't be fooled. It's not all that easy to gain access to the
headlight dimmer switch, at least in the combo switch
used in the late 80s cars.  You need to bust and then repair
some spot welded brass bus bars to get in there. (Drilling
rivets only gets you to the 1st layer of switches -- the headlight
on/off and the emergency flasher.)  Then you have to figure
out how to rebuild the torn up plastic bits in the spring-ball
detent mechanism.

I believe August and I have exchanged views on this before.
He has convinced me his time is cheap. ;-|
