    Any advice on adjusting a new Cartier horn frame?

    Hi there! I’ve worked for a horn company in the past and I have some advice:

    you should always use a cream that will protect the outer finish. Keep the horn moving in the heat. Wear gloves because it will get HOT. talk to the company to ask about adjusting their horn. If it is layered then it’s okay to adjust usually. If not then it might be tricky.

    the absolute best way to do it is to heat op a bowl of neutral oil. Here’s a video that explains this process
