Here is a picture and video of a Lubor Fiedler Phantom Clock that I restored to working condition. When I received it the pendulum was not working, the light was very dim, the clear pastic over the clock face was scratched up, and the wiring had been tampered with.

I replaced the clock & pendulum mechanism. I could not find and exact match to the original, but found something very close. I had to slightly modify the inside of the clock so it would work perfectly. The pendulum arm on the new mechanism was slightly different. I had to piece together the top part of the new pendulum arm with the bottom part of the original.

I completely rewired it and replaced the led light. I used a new yellow 5mm LED light with 100 Ohm resistor.

For the scratches, I wet sanded with 1000, 1500, and then 2000 grit sandpaper. I then used a plastic polisher/scratch remover to finish it up.
