Re: Where is the VIN

Would that be my left drivers side in the US or my Right drivers side in the UK?

Re: Where is the VIN

They are not marked or stamped in the frames. They are a label and if you try to peel it out of the car it will leave a spot on the frame that says "Void". I don't think you have one in you car because of the modifications and fab work that was done to the frame. It seems to me though that when that car was in my shop getting updated and some repairs done we had Redline print up another label for Rick to put on the frame after he finished with his paint or powder-coat.

Problems? Questions? Need parts or Repairs? Send us an e-mail, PM, or Call (435) 705-9846

Re: Where is the VIN

I ran across this old thread and I thought I would add to it.
On my car, I used some metal stamps, to permanently mark the frame with the VIN number, in 2 places.
Here's how ...
Alphabet and number stamps, can be purchased at Harbor freight, McMaster Carr, Enco, etc. I bought 1/8" tall stamps.

I cleaned off the powered coat, on the cross tube, behind the dash. Many new cars and trucks, have the VIN stamped on the left side. So I put it on the left. The second place I put on a tube by the engine.
I used a Dead Blow, Ball Peen Hammer. But any 20 oz or heavier hammer will do.
Hold the stamps with Vise Grip Pliers. This will keep the thumbs and fingers happy. Make sure that the stamp is facing the right way! You only get one shot, make it right. A straight scratch line, will help line up the stamps

Copy your VIN with no errors. If you can't read it very well, hit the stamp again, making sure that it is seated in the first stamping.
After you're done stamping, degrease and repaint.

Take a Photo of the two areas and keep a copy with records. Also, photograph the engine number. A second copy should be kept in a safe place, safety deposit box, gun safe, A Mason jar under the back porch where your old Dingo is chained up , etc.

If your car ever gets stollen, you'll have a non-removanble VIN. If the bad guys grind off the first number, there is always the second number.
Even ground off, the number can still be read, with an acid wash or I think, Die penetrate.

Sorry no photos this time, I didn't want to show the world my VIN.

Be Safe,

Bear Foot
