It may have been gray but I couldn't find a speck of gray and I looked in every nook and cranny and all I found seemed to match this green I purchased from Bill Hirsch http://www.hirschauto.com/ENGINE-ENAMEL/productinfo/EE-QUART/PAC%20GREEN/.
It brushed on flat and easy and still looks great today. Highly recommended!

Paint (and interior trim) codes were ink stamped on the ID plate and unfortunately most stamps haven't survived. If your amount us with faded paint/trim codes, hopefully you can find some orginal paint and match it to a color chart - here.

Re: Upholstery Repair

I removed mine a few years ago and I believe the're held in with an inside clip at the top and just one screw at the bottom.

Remove the seat back and bottom then the screw at the bottom of the arm rest and lift up and back off the clip. If the shape is still sound a good interior person should be able to reuse it (recovered with padding and fabric).

If my recollection is "fuzzy" please feel free to correct me!

Front Floor Mat

I've gotten a few inquires about the floor mat I made for my 23rd series and thought I would get this posted incase I end up getting a request to make one. It would be much easier (and faster) to make several at the same time vs. one-by-one.

Here is the link that shows some of the development stages.

Please PM me if you're interested.

Before you go to any "extra" efforts (i.e. more than what was done by the factory in 1949~50) don't overlook the timing. Adjust the timing by ear (without the light). On top of the age of the engine, there's several other modern factors that could skew the book's setting requirement of -6deg BTDC (different gas & oils, global warming? [just kidding], etc..).

Timing was such an easy fix for me I just hate to see anyone going through the same headaches as I did. Would of saved me alot of sleep!

I'll ditto James especially if it's the original carpet.

Perhaps you or someone else could benefit in an original restoration. Getting exact dimensions, seam placement, edge boarder stitch style, swatch for exact color and look from an unexposed area, etc... could be very valuable detail. Otherwise like James suggest, find a place to keep it till your're finished with your current project.

- Here is my version of "car restoration golden rules" -

> Take more pictures than you think you need (before and during disassembly)!
> Take a few more pictures!
> Make good notes (for me, hand writing should be legible!)
> Bag, mark and organize all parts removed!
> Don't take short-cuts - be patient!
> DON'T THROUGH ANYTHING THAT COME OFF THE CAR AWAY!
> Take some more pictures!!

I'm sure others have more "golden rules" of their own - and I hope get shared here.
