https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Car-P ... ster-392032-/372874118784
of a '28 shows the Side Mt Cover and the Top Boot done in a cloth type material. Sooooooooooooo im going to assume its the BURBANK 1220 Drab which is what Haartz might have replicated

BTW: ASSUME is the worst word in the english language

Believe the earliest ref to Topping from PACKARD is the 7th series/1930. Called out in the Parts Book - BURBANK 1220 Drab which is a Brownish Gray.

Im betting there is some orig '28 Side Curtains out there somewhere.

Eric Haartz HAARTZ Topping Corp might know a little more. Ill give him a yell and see if he can fill the void on 1928.

Also of note: 1101/EIGHT Photo shows painted shell.

Factory Photos show the Valve Stem covers up to 1936 on Wire Wheels.

Another little TIDPIT: Ive ran 1-3/32 on su8s and 1-3/16 on 8s and cant tell the diff. Would guess PACKARD went with their standard theory - every model should have a diff size weather they need it or not.
