OK so I was thinking there has to got to be some way to repair these turnsignals... Hrmm.. previous owner had put 2 nails in one of them.. That didnt work.. then I thought why not a tube!!.. Ok.. dig dig dig.. found some metal chip brushes.. cut a piece and thought eeee.. bare metal shoved into there.. Not a good idea.. well good but not the right metal tube.
Then I came upstairs and there sitting on the stove was the "BIC PEN" I saw it and instantly took it apart and wow it fits..
I measured a piece of heatshrink to the size I needed for the bic pen.. Cut the bic pen then used some 2-ton epoxy on the rubber of the turn signal.
Its rough its ghetto.. its.. ok half ass.. I went to Home depot but they "of course, since i usually shop at Lowes" didn't have any metal tubing.
The only thing close was the threaded tube for lights.. but it was too big. I didnt want to have to rip the signal apart to drill the rubber.. and risk the chance of ruining it..
Wow thats a lot of rambling for some broken turn signals.. But I had 3 of 4 that were broken.. I even "SHAFTED" the good one.
there you have it a .97cent investment to repair your broken turnsignals.
