I have met Perry and seen his work and can attest to his commitment to a perfect job. He also can do a great dash base restoration, cad plating, NOS sockets, very nice. You will see in his website tooling he's made to roll, crimp, etc.

Hey Jimmy...
Perry Ruiter is in British Columbia, Canada. His telephone number is (250)658-2892. Last year I bought a 32E generator from him for a servi-car project and it looked brand new and worked perfect. He is a true craftsman and I think his prices are reasonable for what you get.
