Well, I have just made a decision that will be affecting the course of day to day business beginning now and will continue for approximately the next three to four months for JS Restorations. I will not be accepting any new business for short term restoration work during this time.

JSR has reached a capacity level that will require some new work down time to concentrate on completing existing orders. No part restoration orders have or will ever be compromised to increase speed at the cost of diminishing quality.

Also, JSR will be discontinuing any plastic work orders, being restorations or custom made items including grilles, gauge clusters, switch panels, heater control panels, radio panels or radio face plates. Again, all existing orders will be completed.

I will consider accepting new electrical restoration work that will have a longer range turn around window during this period. A for instance would be a car going through an entire restoration process where electrical work can be scheduled with a negotiated completion date.

Once these current orders are completed, I will make another announcement when a “business as usual” mode is back in place. I will have some new items that I will be offering for restoration, too.

Last, but not least, I would like to thank all of the clients with current orders and those with completed orders and the referrals to their friends. This has truly been a blessed experience to serve each and every one of you.

Jim

Jim Jim Jim Jim Jim....what day is it? What DAY is it?

Inside joke between us, but I feel your pain. I think it's called growing pains, can't find good help, can't trust anyone to do it your way, you need two more of yourself, can't figure out how you're going to ever finish and keep everyone happy and before you know you, you reach the point where you are. I think you've made a good interim business plan, very professional of you and you know my prayers are with you for your catch up. Just remember to take a minute now and again for yourself, if you don't take care of yourself, you can't take care of anyone.

Thank you, Kim. Ah, been there, done that?!

Hopefully this won't take long, but when my wife thinks this is a good idea, I just had to do it.

and Scott Smith is to blame with his pesky magazine article!

seriously, given the level of quality I have seen and heard about that you provide, an announcement like this was to be expected and I would do the same thing as you're doing

Thank you Mike and Shawn.

Yes, I am working through the backlog. Minimum of twelves plus, six and a half days a week.

Here is a picture of some components to a switch that I missed showcasing from beginning to end. I have been restoring these right along with all the others. I will get that done soon.

Any ideas what switch uses these components?

I make these rivets and have the washers custom made along with one other custom part. If I show that last custom part would be a dead give away.

This is the restoration of a 70 only E body 2947905 turn signal switch. One unique marking on this switch is the position of the arrow on the knob. To turn on the four way flashers, you needed to pull the knob out away from the column, the triangle points away from the column, too. The 70 only B body 2947509 and the C body 2947503 turn signal triangles points toward the steering column and needed pushed in to turn on the four way flashers. The terminal wiring is reversed to accommodate the difference of pulling out or pushing in to activate.

I would like to thank Dave and crew at ECS for this addition on this switch. thumbs





BTW, I still am in a holding pattern on taking on new work orders. This turn signal part was one of my client’s in shop orders. Again, once caught up with the current work backlog, I will make an announcement here on Moparts that JSR will be available for new restoration work orders. Thanks again to everyone with current orders and their patience.

Back on 3.25.15, I posted a picture of some custom made stainless steel washer and rivets that I make. I left out the custom made 302 stainless steel resistor coil which would have been a dead giveaway.

Well, here is answer to that question of what they are installed into, the single frame style B and C body thumbwheel dash dimmer switch. The more common part number is 2864444, but this one being restored is a 2947918 and a few other numbers, 2771128, 2947173 that have come across the bench.
