Looking for a LM dash ashtray with electroplated "bin" in good condition. I have good door and can change rivets if needed. My bin is very corroded due to lots of cig ash left in it for 50 years. PM me with cost and shipping if you have one.

To be clear, I don’t expect to find a perfect one as after 50 plus years all
Of our Corvairs have been smoked in at one time or another. Just looking for one with less pitting than the one I have that can be replated.

As we speak, I took mine out to refurbish it with rust remover and then a small wire wheel brush on drill , turned out ok ,so now a coat of VHT ceramic header paint in flat silver . The paint is rated up to 2000’ degrees, but it won’t get tested in my ownership.

I head blasted mine and planned on having it electroplated but its pretty pitted. Never thought about VHT paint. Good idea! THanks
