Sprint FHC Roof Scribblings

PostPost by: archigator » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:09 pm

I remember there being writing on the underside of my FHC roof when I replaced the headliner years ago, but I didn't pay much attention then. I took off the headliner again today and this time documented the crayon writing there.

I found the words "FINAL" in large letters, "ALL RED" (my car was non-original pearlescent white when I bought it, and the color on the ID plate was never filled-in at the factory), a free-standing number "3", and the number "0348E."

I imagine "FINAL" means that it passed final inspection. "ALL RED" must mean that my car was a solid red, not red-over-white (as it is now), "0348E" is my chasis number: 7109220348, and I have no idea what the number "3" means.

Passed final inspection before being trimmed? Maybe VINYL ?

That's neat stuff. A few of us here have the word "Final" written on top of the console 'glass.
