Engine paint
« on: April 22, 2006, 05:48:52 PM »
JohnZ recently noted that the vin pad was masked for painting.  Was it a great mask or just a piece of tape across it and you got what you got?  Any body have an original pic?  Dave

Most of the time it was just a piece of masking tape torn off a roll and stuck on the pad; sometimes the pad was just wiped with a solvent-soaked rag instead. It wasn't a "concours" operation - they just needed to have the pad readable at the shipping dock with engines coming in one every twelve seconds.
