I'd recommend that copies be made --BW or color-- of the ROT sheets being removed from our cars, and place the copies back in the cars at a minimum.

Owners are disappointed whenever the ROT sheet cannot be found, lets at least put a copy back if not the original back in the cars. There are many reasons why the sheets may end up separated from the car once we remove them. I suggest this in the unlikely event that the sheet isn't passed on with the sale of your cars.

We all hope someone else will enjoy our cars after we have, lets not disappoint them with a missing ROT sheet.

I thought you wanted everyone to post those ROT sheets with a pic of the data plates, Ray?

I thought you were trying to correlate the date codes between the 2? Maybe I'm wrong as I have slept a few times since the "Last Squarebird" thread. LOL!!!

Hey Guys,
Why not get originals laminated?

Default My Interior Work On Rose Has Started

Lets see if I can answer several questions at once here.. First of all, the interior... I saw the insulation material he is going to use. It is gray, and not cork. I will let him use what he usually uses on these classic cars. He does a lot of them. Hummm, Blazing Yellow for the interior! Now that's a thought!

The idea that a copy of the ROT/Build/Broadcast sheet be placed back in the car after you find it is a very good idea. I intend to take the tag back to Rose and have them attach it back to the seat. I have copies of it. Making copies is a very good idea and laminating the original one is an excellent idea for posterity. In fact, it would be a great idea to laminate the copy and put it in the glove box! Easy to find there!

Yes, it would be a great idea to post the Build Sheet and the Data Plate together, so we can all see them, and see how they correspond to each other. I think I did say that at one time.

There! I think that catches me up!

A good idea, but once it's laminated there's no turning back. Personally, I would do an extra copy of each and laminate those to keep in the glovebox, and put the unmoleseted original paper copies away in safe place.

I had some stuff laminated once thinking it would preserve the items, which it did, but I subsequently learned that they weren't as vaulable and collectable once laminated.

Excellent point ...I've done research on it...social security, birth certs., FOID cards, and more are all no good once laminated -by means other than the issuing party.

perhaps vacuum seal bags?

Yeah, good suggestion, I guess i'm borderline anal because I keep all my cool hot rodding magazines in A4 ziplock plastic bags. Keeps them nice and fresh, and damp-free.

My wife says I take more care of my magazines than I do her, and my reply was "and your point being...?"

She didn't take well to my offer of treating her with equal care by keeping her in an airtight plastic bag too.

Just kidding, I love her dearly, almost as much as the latest Rod & Custom magazine with the '52 Cadillac convertible custom on page 38, the one with the sensual lines that looks even better with it's top off, great chassis, big headlights, tuck 'n' roll... mmmmm... tuck 'n' roll.
