Has anyone ever authenticated the copper lines having cad plating on them?

Yes, some of the s/c heater lines and fittings were cad. You should start a new thread for this Mark, we don't want to hijack Richards.

I wouldn't have mentioned it, but Richard seems to be trying to build his car as authentic as possible. If he is planning on getting his car judged, it is a couple less checks on the score card.


Hello Kurt,
You are correct I am trying to restore it as correct as I can but that is not the only goal I want.
Last year I restored a 31 355A Cadillac and it got 100 pt. at a concourse show and was a senior award winner at an AACA show but this car did not get an invitation to Amelia Island Concourse.
So my goal being I live in Florida is to get an invite to Amelia Island in March.
This is the reason I am restoring this Auburn, so what I am saying is it might have some small things not correct but like ilikescars said, it looks nice. Yes someday I want to come to Auburn in September but Amelia Island is my first goal.
Regards
Richard

Keep trying with Amelia Island - they have a huge number of applications (it very well have been a space thing verses they do not like your car). That beings said, cars that do not have period "look" will knock you off the plate.

Steve Snyder in California may have the tags via CCCA project, http://www.vaultcars.com

Vivian Levine via Levine Restorations in Indiana (Pulpher & Williams) is a solid choice as well

My opinion with the 1935 - 1936 oil fills were that they were black from manufacturer, but painted green upon assembly of engine by Lycoming - and then the green peeled off,

Tuesday Update: I saw dad's 1935 engine today (they are getting ready to drop it in car - it now has a green oil fill, cap, dipstick, and ... - I was asked why it had not been done it properly (I laughed and replied I have been frying other fish and .....). When it was restored the first time they used the old restoration standards - it has taken a small army of us really looking over unrestored cars with a magnifying glass to figure out what is proper and ... - and we still learn something new once a week or so.

The 898 Coupe that I am working on is very original. The above pix of the oil filler tube from that car.
There is no black under the green, on the cap or the tube. Dave K. in Cal. found the same thing on his low mile survivor 8-100 cabriolet. FWIW
