    Posted: 26 Nov. 2005 at 9:53pm

Hi All,

I just bought a 47 cj2a, and I want to check the frame # before going to DMV. The current title has the engine # for a VIN.

I have found the plate on the frame, but it's got 48 years worth of paint on it and I can't make out the numbers. I want to pull some paint off, but I'm concerned with damaging or destroying the numbers.

Any recommendations? can I just use some thinner and try to pull the paint?

to many jeeps, parts, and accessories to list here, but apparently enough to keep me in trouble with my wife.
