Richard :

Did you know that the body number ID plate was painted with the car and should be body colour? Here is a photo of mineWhen taking it apart...Also note the attaching screws. 

Didier :

Yes Richard it's true, the number of the body was installed before painting. The number of the body was also installed has the interior on the aluminium rods which make the turn of the cockpit. I would show that for the next photographs of my BN1's restoration
