Vin plate and registration


2323

Recommended Posts

I purchased a rolling shell a couple months ago and took it straight to the body shop to have major work performed. I have the title, though I have not registered the vehicle. The vehicle was last registered in California and the vehicle will be registered in Arizona. Should I be concerned that I have not registered the vehicle before painting it? I am hesitant to remove the VIN plate in the engine compartment. I also may have disgarded the piece that goes about the steering column that also contains a vin number. Any advice would be greatly appreciates as to what I need to do to make this legit.

There should be a VIN stamping on the passenger inner fender. It may have painted over, but probably visable if you know where to look (see pic).

While on this topic (re-spray and VIN tag), what is the product used to cover the fender VIN numbers to keep them from rusting (masked off prior to painting)? My car is like others I've seen with some sort of coating applied over the numbers to keep them readable - but not rust.

Also - I purchased a new VIN tag from Mobile Tradition, but need to stamp the VIN numbers AND add the weights (in black) to the blank areas. I have access to a set of punches at work. Any other ideas?

Is the VIN stamping on the inner fender in lieu of the VIN plate?

No, you should have the "stamping" and a VIN plate on the passenger inner fender; unless you have a '76, as a many of those came from the factory without a VIN plate.

It appears to me to just be gray primer.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
