    The VIN is stamped down into the metal-not up from the bottom. When I stamped mine, I cut a piece of 4x4 lumber that supported the underside of the apron. The wood ran from the undersid eof the apron down to the floor. I used a 3 lb hammer to strike the stamps. I recommend that you get some sheetmetal that is the same gauge as the apron (either new metal or some scrap) and practice striking the stamps so that you can get a feel for how hard you need to hit them. Use the same type of backing material (i.e. wood) under the sheetmetal so that you can work on getting the look that you want. I experimented by using a 1/4" steel backer instead of wood and I didn't like the look of the stampings. The wood seemed to give the best look since it will give a little as the metal is stamped. I made a fixture out of angle iron to hold my all of my stamps while I was stamping the apron - there is no way you will get a straight consistent line of numbers & letters by trying to do it freehand.

    Hey Greg
    I have a question about vin stamping. I have a 65 that I want to replace the apron on and restamp the vin. everything is legit no problem there,but after reading you post I have a question. the stamps from McMaster seem to punch the vin down into the metal and I think the original were stamped out . was this you experience or am I looking at the wrong stamps. I think the aprons are too heavy a gauge to punch outward
    thanks for any help

    Greg, I'm putting a 1993 5.0 efi and T% in my sons 68 which is currently all origanal. You seem to have the key to the mod for the 93 wiring harness. Could please get a copy and any helpful pointers? I have all the wiring harness from the 93 but have no clue what mod's need to be done to hook it into the 68.

    Hey so I saw your resto in progress below a post. The paint looks amazing! I have the same emberglow coupe. Also a 66 and it's in need of a new paint job. How much did it run you to have yours painted and do you remember the brand of paint you/they used? Thanks so much

    Hi, I am working on an efi swap in my 1965 fastback and noticed that you mentioned that you had a write up on the wiring. If you could send that to I would really apreciate it. Thanks
    I am having some difficulty in wiring the relays as shown on the ford fuel injection web site. specifically what wires to run where such as the grey/yellow wire on the green plug and where to attach the red/green wire

    Hey Greg, Thanks for the input on my post. Just looked at your profile, my dad retired from the Navy as a Sr. Chief Medical Corpsman... Is your car a 5.0 with T5?
