Door plate....leave it? Or renew it?
« on: May 23, 2017, 08:41:59 PM »

Greetings from a soon to be member of the OD class.

I ordered a new door plate for my '67 coupe. The original is still attached to the car, but looks a little beat up, and has a bit of over spray on it from a previous repaint. Is it frowned upon to change that plate?

Thanks in advance!

Certainly not.  Use the correct rivets to finish it off right.

Defiantly replace it. Keep the original in a safe place you will want it if you ever move up to a Concours driven class.
In OD you are only judged on quality, cleanliness and condition. I will stress you just can not clean too much.
Good Luck!
