Default Nathan AirChime identification

I was given these by my father and I’m trying to find information about them.. I want to restore them to their previous glory, not install on a vehicle. As you can see by the pictures the screws on the baffle covers are pretty much stuck and I’m probably going to have to drill and retap. Are there any places that refurbish them? https://imgur.com/gallery/RUaxk

Okay since those are P horns, this is what I would recommend:


1. Visit the Horn and Whistle board (Google it) and ask those gents. They do a lot of restores and would be able to help more than most of us could here.

2. If you want to do it on your own ..... I would use a small drill bit with an adjustable speed Dremel to make a small hole for a tap, and then extract them. The gents on the Horn and Whistle board will probably recommend you to do this, or if you're not confident doing it yourself, they might have a recommendation for you.


Either way, whomever does the work needs to be slow, patient, and be gentle with them. P series horns are collector's items, so treat them as much.
