New Ignition/Headlight switch & Antenna Bezel tools!

Ever need one of these?

[IMG]*********************I have a '60 Cadillac. I jacked up my ignition bezel, and then someone stole it years ago. I've just located another nice one, and I didn't want to screw it up by using two screwdrivers to get it on. The search was on for an ignition switch bezel tool.

Eventually I found a guy named John *********
I called him up at **********and hit him up for a tool.

Apparently he makes 'em - a LOT of different ones. And if you have a bezel he DOESN'T make a tool for, if you donate it to him (to check his tools with - he checks each and every one before it leaves the door) he'll send you a tool for free!

Check him out if you get a chance. He also has an eBay store, **************************

I'm never using a screwdriver on another bezel ever again!

Once again, this is purely informational - not SPAM. I just figured I'd pass the info on.

I edited your post because of the advertising in it. I realize you are trying to be informational, but I have no way of knowing if you are involved with the company or not, so I erred on the side of caution. If anyone needs a bezel tool, they can PM you and get the info that way. I hope you understand.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

I've been making my own out of water pipe for years. All it takes was a short length of pipe of the proper diameter, a black or white marking pen, a grinder or a hand file and a little time. Just use the marker to locate each depression in the bezel and grind or file away the remaining metal, leaving the points to fit into the bezel. Hand tight is all the torque you should put on these bezels and DON"T CROSS THREAD THEM!
