Those are sobering numbers on rebuild costs, Dave. Such a grand old car, though... BTW - sorry guys, I have no idea how I ended up posting this in the PARTS department!! Too late to move it now; sometimes I think I need a 'check-up from the neck-up'!!! (been in isolation too long!! LOL) Chris.

Hi Pack120C,

There'll be electrical experts weighing in on this for sure, and I seem to recall a wiring diagram for 'driving lights' being posted not that long ago. I bought a set of Unity/Packard lights for my car and they came with an under-dash switch. That allowed them to be wired 'independently' of the regular Headlight wiring and all that was required for power was a hot wire to the switch, which I grabbed from a 'key-on-only' contact on the ignition switch. (easy to find with a multi-meter) I'd use a good heavy gauge wire and a fairly stout fuse as the lights draw quite a bit of juice. Chris.

Hi WJames,
Not sure if the blades are the same from '37 - '39, but I know I received a box of miscellany from a P.I. member who no longer had his pre-war and there were a couple of wiper blades still in the package with 'Made in China' labels, so I'm pretty sure they have been repro-ed if you can't find NOS. I believe they were 9" and they actually looked like decent quality. I'd check with our 'regular vendors'. Chris.

Hi Pippo,

Welcome to Packard Info. I read your registry notes and it sounds like you have the restoration or your '23 Single Six duly organized and well underway. Even in unrestored condition, that photo in the registry shows a very complete and classic looking Packard. She will really be something when complete! Good luck and I'm sure you'll find the folks at P.I. to be very helpful and informative. Chris.

What a beauty! The horizons of perfection... the pictures certainly seem to justify the price. Not to nitpick, but I am not partial to that interior colour. Sure looks to my novice eye to be a very nicely detailed Packard. Chris.

Re: 1940 120 Dome light removal

Hi Welding Willy,

I have previously learned my lesson on giving advice on vehicles not EXACTLY the same as my car as, although I would assume other models of the same year and those only a year different, would be similar or same, that has proved to be incorrect on more than one occasion. Having said that, if your dome light looks like mine in the photo, it just clips on, with some dimples on the inner rim of the chrome ring, snapping into the light receptacle box. It should just pull straight down but if it hasn't been off in a long while, may require some side-to-side squizzling. Be careful with the glass lens as it is probably pretty brittle with age and easy to drop as the thing comes apart. Chris.

Yes, it seems in a lot of restorations, mechanical and body & paint get addressed and interiors are on the 'to-do list' with a blanket thrown over the old upholstery. IF they get done, a lot of the time it is an obvious money-saving, less-than job. As a relative newcomer to the hobby, I have to say, interior costs were something that startled me!! Chris.

A couple of spare wheels came with my '39 Six and with one of them, the width and bolt pattern was correct but the hubcap attachment was different and I couldn't use it. 'Just sayin', that has to be part of the exchange compatibility criteria too, right?? Chris.
