I found something interesting yesterday as I was prepping one of my roof sides for paint. There was the last four numbers of my Vin. # stamped in the metal under the window rubber.

That's pretty cool! They've been found in various other places before.

Yeah, I've occasionally seen partial ID number stamps on the hardtop window frame (like yours) or on one of the rear triangle corner braces on the tub, or on the driver's door jamb on the firewall section (near the lower door hinge)

But, not every truck has every number, nor are they in the same place(s), so it seems like they would just stamp (or not stamp) the body somewhere at random... no regular pattern, or consistency from truck to truck...

But it is cool to know that your truck still has its "born with" hardtop... :clap:

I can't believe it's been 6 years since I first started restoring the 67. Finally yesterday I had Desert Rat dropped off at the painter. I painted the interior, engine bay and underneath the stock grey but due to my community I don't want to push my luck and set up a spray booth on my driveway. Can't wait to see it shine. :D

Is that the hood I gave you? Or did you end up fixing the wrinkle in the other one..?

Fogging the primer, that's a real pro move there. Good work!

While to exterior is getting painted time to deal with the worn out seats. I tore them totally down to find the wood was cracked and miss shaped. After getting the rust off and priming them I found some exact matching fiber board at Lowe's and made new backs. Found an ancient Japanese seat manufacturing paper inside. Anyone care to translate. lol Now just down to does my wife sew the covers or to the upholsterer.

So while the Patrol is in the paint shop and the seats are at the upholsterer I tackled the mangled front bumper. It was so bad it was bent in at the middle and kinks around the edges. I used the press at work to flatten the middle and kept crushing the edges in my vice to get them as flat as possible. Then had to use filler for the rest. It's not perfect but a hundred times better than it was.
