Hi Tim, contributions are the key here. Quite a while ago I made contact with Mary Kileen ( I think I have the spelling right however she is not listed in the Directory) and she sent me a copy of the details on how to set up the petrol door area on a Cord. The details are extensive and quite precise.
Have other areas in Cords been covered with similar restoration guidelines?
If yes, how can they be accessed by the members?

Terry: Mary is listed with her husband, Tom Dudley in Michigan. She wanted to start a restoration manual for 810/812 Cords, but it never got off the ground. I remember seeing something in regard to the gas tank fill area years ago.
Best to contact her and maybe it can be posted here.
I have to give a shout out to Mark Tomei and Allan McCrary (and many others) for all their hard work on the new restoration standards for all three Marques.
Tim.

Tim, I have to agree with you on the way we view restored cars today.Many years back I was so disappointed to learn having a car judged you never got to see where you was marked down. How can an owner bring a car to the best restored standard if they have no idea what or where to improve. I take my hat off to the many hard working club members that have worked tireless hours to bring about these welcomed changes.I really enjoyed watching, listening and asking questions at the recent west coast meet where you mock judged Randy's Beverly. Sadly I should have videoed it.

i've done quite a few building projects over the years.... almost exclusively on homes over 100 years old. one particular story might have some relevance here. the plumbing and heating inspector comes in to look over a newly installed furnace and duct work. he says" i'll never pass this till you fix the problems." and leaves. the furnace guys ( who had 30 years experience) scratch their heads look the job over and change a couple things. inspector comes back. same comment. they try a couple different things. same comment. finally they ask the inspector what he wants? he says, " i'm not here to do your job for you." after more trial & error they finally made him happy. wouldn't it have been more efficient if he had told them what was "wrong" on the first trip. that would have saved him 5 more trips to that job site.
if a given car clubs goal is to preserve & improve the remaining vehicles out there....we should provide as much help as is feasible to forward that goal. not all of us are interested in making a show car. however, i think most would like to raise the authenticity of the car they have. anything the club car do along those lines will have long term benefits to the body of remaining vehicles ...which will probably out live us.

The inspectors around here get paid for each visit! Now you know the answer.
