    Not going after them. They would be nice, but it is an item that is rarely seen, ie: who leaves their doors open at shows.

    We become obsessive. When the Hawk won best 50's at the Stamford Ct. Museum car show, we came to the conclusion that it won only becasue noboody knew what it was. They had no idea if the interior was correct, or the engine was properly detailed.

    They just had no idea what the darn thing was.

        Bill the judges look, and that's why my sill trim is covered with clear vinyl tape until it's at a show. kind of silly to keep scuff plates unscuffed is it not.

            That is kinda like re-painting the car rather than washing it

                Noticed the restored stainless on Sid has tiny scuffs on top, maybe from the car cover or my clothing. It almost looks like you'd have to do the final detailing on the judging field, hopefully, not in the nude.

                        I could have had the holes punched as on the original sill plates but so many of the cars have rusted or oversized holes so I thought it would be better if buyers drilled their own holes where the floor is most solid. ER

                            Very good idea Ed, that makes total sense to me, to make them completely usable in all cases! [^]
