Submitted by Robert Perry:

"Photo taken in 1938. During the 1940s it got torn and I [about 8 at time] scotch taped it back together. Over time the old scotch tape yellowed and disintegrated. In the late 60's a friend who was a commercial photographer soaked it in either water or a chemical to remove the old tape, and then pasted the pieces to a hard piece of photo board."

Challenge: Restore this photo. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore "Grandmother's Dodge", and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

Hi Doug, I have been playing with this for some time but as I live over this side of the pond (England) I can't find an old picture of the car for reference. Can you just tell me what you mean by fender. I think it's what we call the bumper, the bar that runs along the front and back of the car. Also can you tell me what the colour is of the part that is over the wheel, as it looks so much lighter, what we call the wing. Maybe it's just the sun reflecting of it that makes it look that way. Thanks Vicky.

Vicky & doug -- May I jump into this conversation? The web link below will show you photos of numerous 1935 Dodges. If you'd like more, I can certainly provide. The ones relevent to this discussion are the "restored to original" passenger cars, and not the pick up trucks, street rods, etc. In American terminology, the "fender" is the portion of the car's body that covers the wheels to keep mud from splashing up on the car. The bumper is the chrome rod that runs across the back and front. I'm not sure of the British term for those. As further FYI, American's use the term "Hood" for what Brits call the "Bonnet." And from the wonderful new movie "The Queen," she speaks of a broken "prop shaft" [or propeller shaft] when she stalls her Land Rover in the River. And we call that part a "Drive Shaft." Please ask if I can help any further. Paste the following into your browser.

PS - I'm not completely sure why the fender and hood area in the original photo are so much lighter. I'm guessing this photo was taken in mid day or early afternoon on a sunny day, and the light and shadows play a role. The actual color of this car was a very dark navy blue on all the body and hood, and black fenders. The house was cream with dark brown trim and shingles. Please excuse my intrusion. Robt

No intrusion, Robert. That's what this section is for.

Hi Rob, thanks for reply - pardon the delay in replying but have been very busy lately. You have been a great help in spelling it all out to me but what's even better is the picture of your car in front of the original house, brilliant, you see, now I don't even have to go on the web looking for it. Wouldn't mind living there, where is it? looks like New Hampshire - am I right? What you call the fender we call the wing and we both agree on the bumper. I have also been tilting the picture the wrong way. So there you go Rob, ta very much.
Tara, Vicky.

I am SO glad that I'm not the only one with relatives who can appear to make houses fall over!
