We frequently see vehicles that have been restored and for one reason or another during the restoration the ID tags were removed and reattached after the body work was completed. This could be a costly mistake, leave the crusty tags attached to the car and mask around them, while this may be the ugliest part of the restoration it will preserve the true identity of your vehicle.

Frequently the tags are removed and cleaned and reattached using pop rivets. His seem like the prudent thing to do, the next person the may be interested in this vehicle is going to be looking for authenticity and there is always going to be a question about the authenticity id the ID tags are not attached with the proper fasteners, what’s to say these tags aren’t from another vehicle?
