I have a totaled truck that I'm trying to get a salvaged title issued to and am curious what I need to do since the Vin # on the dash isn't attached anymore. There actually is no dash in the vehicle at all, it looks just like the piece inside. I have the Vin plate though. If I built a dash and rivited it on would that fly on a Vin Check or do they still just issue the new plate on the door jam? Anyone here perform Vin Checks in the San Diego area? The truck is currently in Lakeside at my work's warehouse.
