    I like the scallops! Very tasteful and like 54HotRod said, not over bearing.

    I came across the horn issue at a friends 56 Olds. Cause of it was a short circuit at the turn indicator return spring touching the horn ring contact. Fixed it by slightly bending the spring + a little insulation. ;)
