Hello:

Are both open and closed car horn brackets the same ? If not, how do you tell the difference ?

Yes, they are the same but use large u-bolts on convertibles which is why they have so many holes.

Thanks Stan:

Not sure I undrestand your "which is why they have so many holes" comment.

The brackets that I have have holes for 2 U-bolts each. Does this mean they are correct for closed cars ?

Also, are the brackets and attachment nuts cad plated and the horns black (there also seems to be a nut near the bulb of the horn which hasn't been painted black on mine - it is cad plated, too. Is this correct ?).

Thanks for your help.

Bill,

The reason why the bracket has several holes in it is do to the closed cars radiator support rods are about 1/2" solid steel rods and the open cars 'bird cage' radiator supports rods are manufactured out of what I would call 1/2" heavy wall pipe (similar to water or natural gas pipe) which has a greater diameter. Hence, make one bracket with several holes to fit either open or closed cars.

CORDially,

Al Hatch
