I'm very certain that the VIN tag is OEM although I'd like a better pic to confirm. The trim tag judgement cannot be made without a better quality photo.

For education purposes, what's the issue with the TT picture?

I was just checking the ridiculous finale bid on a BAT auction of a Ď63 Split Fuelie.

Noticeable sanding under itís VIN for the spot weld procedure.

Cool, at least that one is done a little more carefully than the one we were discussing.


I thought of this today too, while using my spot welder at work and had to sand off the paint to get it to work properly...

Bad quality. The best way to photograph a mid year Corvette trim tag or VIN tag is by holding the camera or phone upside down to allow the flash to hit the tag directly. This is only after a thorough wipe down with paint thinner/wax and grease remover/brake cleaner
