Crayon Mark on Inner Heater Box
« on: February 20, 2015, 01:17:20 AM »
Has anyone else seen a number or marking on their inner heater box? If so, does anyone know what the significance of this number means? Thank you, CRG.

The number on the black RS/Z was the same on the top of the fuel tank as the heaterbox (80) I assumed it was a sequencing number.

Would that be the same number on the fender extensions? Cause my extensions say "R6"? Where else would this number on heater box (24) be found?

My heater box had 87 on it and the gas tank had 487?

Not sure about NOR, but my VN car also had the sequence number marked on the driver's side 'saddlebag' behind the fender. Not sure if it was grease pencil, crayon or maybe chalk though, as I left it alone as found.

Sure its not RG, for Ralley Green, the color of the car?
