The Chassis number on my Ex Army Gypsy is MG71-IN199300. Is there a way using this to tell the month/year of manufaturing? It is suppose to be 1999 Ex-Army?

Cheers,

Hi Wildon,

I am not able to locate the 'Bodywork Paint Identification Plate' of my Palio SDX.
I checked the driver side door and couldn't find it. (infact, I checked all the doors). Any alternative locations should I check? Or would be inside the door fabric trim / insert (I haven't added anything. It's stock)?

May be they have used that sticker for old palio's.

I have gone through the DuPont color code list, unfortunately there no color like infinity black. There are other black color names, will that be helpful ?!
