Does anyone know of the proper sequence on how to properly put up and down the Phaeton's top?

Raising and lowering the top is defined in Cord service bulletin no. 46 dated Aug. 19,1936. 10 easy steps to raise, 11 to put it down, pictures included, a total of 3 pages. It has also been covered in some of the earlier books on the 810/812.

Two men and a trained Monkey works very well also.

Having both a 1935 Auburn Phaeton and a Cord Phaeton I can tell you that the Auburn is on the order of about 100 times more difficult to raise and lower even with an entire zoo to help. It is at least a 3 person job and could be likened to monkeys playing basketball.
