• Holden Bulletin - RG Colorado VIN Stamping

    - article submitted by Holden Australia


    Holden now have the ability to stamp the original VIN on a replacement RG Colorado chassis before it is fitted to the vehicle.

    Stamping the original VIN on a new chassis eliminates the need for a second VIN.

    Please note that depending on the model year of the vehicle the lead time for a chassis could be up to 16-20 weeks from date of part order.
