After searching the archives about horn rebuilding and using the Zip Corvette rebuild kit... I was just wondering if anyone has actually had success with the kit and have their horns working good as new? Many have said that their horns were weak after the rebuild.

I have the kit on the way and was looking for some good reviews on the rebuild.

Try soaking the horns with Liquid wrench. Rotate the horn so the fluid runs into the center. Leave It for a few days, then dry It out with compressed air (not too much pressure). If you can't get Liquid wrench, use diesel fuel. I've brought many horns back from the dead using this method.
Hope this helps.

Hugger/Craig that has to be one of the best put together sites on a Camaro Ive seen in ages. Wonderful job. The step by step pics are great and very informative. A pic is worth 1000 words. Hope it turned out for you as great as it looks.
Not sure I will ever get mine to frame off state like that but your photos will help keep me on track.

I tried the Zip rebuild kit as well, with no luck. If the coil is bad, they are useless. I rebuilt them anyway (what a pain) and repainted them. I only put them on the car when I show it. I bought two plastic replacement horns from AutoZone to use when driving.
