Great job Daniel. Laurie beat me to it but I was going to say, how did you get the tags looking like new? Cheers Ron

Starting with HQ the chassis number went on right at the end of the assembly plant. So they added a sequence number to the firewall just under the LH windscreen squirter pipe. It remained this way until about the middle of 1978 when Commodore came along
Have you got a photo of a sequence number on the firewall? I take it that it was much smaller than the chassis numbers that had been stamped on the firewall previously?

Same size. Elizabeth bodies had it up on the cowl for a while in HQ but all Pagewood bodies had it from the start of HQ right through to VB Commodore volume production. It was in the middle initially but moved over under the LH squirter soon after HQ volume production at Pagewood.

That's some interesting points about the body tags! On my car they were not painted so I simply cleaned them and put them back how I found them!
I brushed them by hand with a fine steel wire brush, then hit them with a steel wool (fine) soap pad to really finish them off. Did it all across the plate horizontally so the brush marks look tidy.

Not a very exciting update today, Sanded the Passenger side Door Jams and Etched then High Filled.
