Two more pictures

Hi, can you read what the VIN number is on on the 0303DZ block? I have a LOS Z/28 with a 3/17 build date.

Your storage containers are way cooler than mine!

 LOS 09D L-78 by oil filter, L502919.

A word of warning! regarding my storage containers, I used 48' trailers to store eight cars and numerous parts and thought it was a great idea to use them until I could eventually build my new garage, well that was approximately seven years ago and when I finally transferred the cars I found pretty bad oxidation from  moisture that formed in these containers through condensation which forms on the ceilings of these things due to no ventilation.  So I have cars that were show winners at one time with rust in the engine compartments, etc. there a mess! I learned the hard way and do NOT recommend any long term storage in those containers. P.S. I live in New Mexico where the climate is very dry and it made no difference condensation will happen when there is no vents, just like a building.

Understand, I have a Buddie in the PNW who did the same, except here (PNW) Rain & Time,,, they (Containers) puddle & rust thru the roof ruining the "tons" of used (parted cars) and nos parts inside,
Shame, he stored 'Ikea' furniture in the dry garage and lost the battle of the elements to the GM parts horde in the sealand containers, & I mean CONTAINERS full,  PIC to come someday, if he lets me snap a few shots

Lesson well stated above.

Sorry about hat,

I have a friend with shorter container (about)18'. He cut out a hole in the top and installed a roof vent with spinning top. seems like it did the trick.

Try Evaporust or similar, with a small pump, a hose showerhead, and a kiddie pool.
Just keep circulating the liquid til it's clean. There's some good pics of this out there.

Seems like once you seal them up the rust comes. I have wheels, parts, etc. under a roof off the back of my shop in NC. A lot of dust but little rust. Also little security.
