    Manta hazard button fix

    I got a tip on a car (74 wagon) in a local junkyard so I went to look at it. Rusty junker but it had a hazard button so I pulled it out. Legs were gone but someone had carved kind of a plug out of balsa. It works great. Holds the button in place and turns the hazard switch on and off perfectly.

    I just had a friend of mine CNC mill a bunch of replacement Manta/Ascona Hazard buttons. They're made from clear acrylic but can be painted or tinted.

    I could use a non-broken button, let me know if you still have any.

    That's what happens when your Swedish friend mills the design for you. I intend to file them down smooth and give them to my Uncle (BQS4) to sell at a National Meet.
