My question is am I better off getting the original horns rebuilt or trying to find a used set to repaint and then perhaps have the same problem? I'm not wanting to install a plastic repo set since everything else on a car is original.
This may be a long shot but has worked for me in the past . Before you throw them out, take a hard rubber hammer and give them each a couple of good hard whacks and see if that improves them any. You may just wake them up from a long sleep and also see a lot of dirt coming out . Good luck, worth a try .
