I looked on the radiator support for my body buck tag when I first got my car and then looked for it again recently and never found it.
When I went to visit my Mystic being painted yesterday, the car was sitting outside in the bright sunshine. (A rarity this spring) The "old" paint was dirty, but the new paint was amazing! Much brighter colors than I ever remember seeing on a Mystic, it seemed. Maybe it's because it's been cloudy and raining for 6 weeks here in NOVA.
Anyway, the front bumper cover and front lights were missing. As I approached my styrofoam bumpered beast, I noticed a tag stapled just inside of where the driver's headlight once was. I didn't write down what was on it, but it did have the last 6-digits of the VIN, LF MYSTIC COBRA, AC and various other numbers/letters on there.
It actually had two tags. One on top of the other. The one on the bottom had very few codes on it, the top one had lots.

Any one else ever see this double tagging? Anyone else find their tag?

I'm thinking you might be able to see the tag when the bumper is installed by removing the headlight and maybe the headlight bucket.
Picking up car tonight.
