Related to your comparison - I guess VTR is orders of magnitude more

ridiculous than JCNA if either of these are real concerns.





JCNA Concours Rule Book:



"Glove boxes and other interior compartments with doors shall remain

closed.  The insides of these compartments are not judged"



"Items Excluded From Judging

Do NOT judge: ... The underside of the vehicle."

And if you have modified your car there are classes for that, too.B  No

deducts for 15 inch wheels or aftermarket exhaust systems (in modified).B

Lots of other allowances.

Hogwash! On a warm sunny day, one strap is stretching with the heat and load.  It's 40 year old, cheap British plastic.  No deductions!

Relax, no reasonable judge will. This is why we don't let Jim judge cars

at VTR ;-)

And please, don't keep your cars out of concourse because you're afraid

of a point being taken here or there. Participation makes the class

better and more meaningful. At the last VTR U was at (Princeton, 2017),

we had a piddling 2 TR7 in concours, and maybe 6 TR8. There were a ton of

cars in Participants Choice, and at least half of them would have been

right at home, and had a shot at a trophy, in concours.

Well I know the straps in my 76 coupe are original and appear to be sharing
the load equally. They are not pulled tight by the door and I am not about to
lean on it to see if one pulls up taught before the other!  And a judge better
not tell me they arenbt original either. :-))

So one of my straps has long ago broken.

The other is doing its duty as intended.

Is that more of a deduct in concourse points than new ones that are equal?



Haha



I will never put my car in concourse again.

I recall seeing an article on drilling a hole in the correct location so

the two straps are taking even tension. So would it cost you points for

correcting that factory deficiency (that presumably was not intended to

be there)??

FWIW, my straps are taking the same load, and are ORIGINAL.



Cheers

Bill
