I've decided that I need to get the chassis broadcast sheet restored for my 69 Z/28 before it becomes totally unreadable. I took pictures of it a few years ago but I'd like to get the real document restored. Any recommendations as to who to use? I've spoken to one possible source ACA Paper Restoration in Devon, PA. They claim to have done this a few times and suggested an approximate cost of $250. Thanks much.  Smiley

To complete this story, I had Elizabeth Chambers, a document conservator with the Portland Art Museum, clean and preserve the brodcast sheet. Turned out well and cost $120. I learned about the damage acids from typical papers, envelopes and even photo storage sheets can do. So now the paperwork can survive another 50 years just like the car. Anyone needing similar document conservation in the Pacific Northwest should consider using Elizabeth. Her phone is 503-276-4216.

Excellent value @ $120.  I probably spent 5X that for a very similar service here in San Diego.

Here's the before and after (note - in the "before" picture, parts of the sheet were torn off and I stored those in an envelope, the paper conservator re-attached them).

I've tried to attach a photo I took in 2006 showing the sheet in readable condition, and one taken today (4/21/12). They look quite similar though by January of this year the actual sheet had darkened considerably from the 2006 photo. I didn't take a pic of the January condition, but it worried me enough that I had the "conservation process" performed. The car has been restored to original condition per the broadcast sheet with some details awaiting funds and discovery of correct parts. When I bought the car in 1995 or 6, it was in sad condition with lots of stuff missing. Fortunately, it had not been cut up though it had been in at least one serious wreck. The ownership history shows the car spent its entire life in the greater Portland area. I used NOS or reconditioned original and dated parts to reconstruct it and did much of the work myself. I live in Aloha, Oregon a western suburb of Portland.

It is amazing that more people don't contact their local museums and just ask, they are generally experts in dealing with sensitive items.
