I opened up 2 Corgi Wall's Ice cream vans.
One with chimes and one without chimes.
The chimes did not work so i have losen the two screws(red circle) and adjust it.
Now the chimes is working.
The bodies in water with costic soda and the plastic parts need a good cleaning.

Easy Off Oven Cleaner will work for your plastic parts. Make them shine again with Non Yellowing floor was. I use Future wax.
I have never had one of these but have seen many here on PD. Keesie used to show us how to fix them up. If you need pointers do a search.
Good projects and nice to have both versions of the Ice Cream Truck.

One of the nicest models Corgi made ,Some of the combs have broken off the musical box , you will not get the correct Walls chime, I waited as seen in some of my Corgis and eventually got a musical box complete. This will not distract your restoration as they will look great when finished.

I have found on youtube a little movie with the chimes for the Corgi Wall's Ice cream van. It is the same tune as i have so i know it is the right chime.

Thats good that they are the combs that make the chime, if you go to some of my Corgis page 39 you will see the video I made of the chimes.

I have seen that people use Pledge future floor care finisch for the windows. It gives a nice shine on the windows.
But i don't find it near my hometown.
Is it another name for the pledge in Belgium?
Kind regards,

I use Future Floor Wax. Any non-yellowing clear floor was will do.

Milky sounds interesting. I use Future and it is crystal clear. Does a great job on windows.
