A Cord recovered and renewed. (pics)
It was on the 'bay a month ago, with this description: "1931 Cord L-29 Phaeton Sedan 1:43 Scale By Matrix Scale Models. Condition is Used. Detached headlight, in package. Lens for headlight is missing. See photos for further details, pics are of actual item. Imperfections may exist. All sales are final, no returns." My bid of the minimum $13.99 was accepted.

I admired this Cord when Matrix introduced it, but there was always something else. But a project is something else! So this damaged survivor arrived and I put it away while going out of town for a couple of weeks. Now I've returned.

Old fashioned modeling clay comes in handy!

(Next time I'll try the clear resin, as Rich suggested just as I was taking these pictures.) It's fun to bring one back to life!
