    Greetings, may be closing a deal soon and car has original broadcast sheet but very faded. What s recommendation to :

    1) transfer information to a reproduction sheet to capture all codes before they fade further and may no longer be readable.
    2) preserve original document from further damage and fading.

    Feedback much appreciated.

    I put mine in a sealed plastic file folder, and hid it in a lockbox, took five xerox's ( ok, fax copies, whatever) took a good color photo with both my tablet and phone, sent to a file on the laptop,and desktop.

    Historical documents can be read even if they were erased and written over. Someone maybe able to digitally enhance the printing on broadcast sheet.

    I agree with high quality photos and copies. For storage, go to a comic book store and buy an acid free board and cover used to protect comic books and magazines.

      Use a flatbed scanner, works very well. You can digitally add contrast and brightness which helps read some of the faded areas.
