Randy: If you have to remove the plate from the sheet metal some states
will require a new identity plate be issued by the state for the
previously titled vehicle as a "salvage" title. This is always required
here (Maine) if a salvaged vehicle is rebuilt from parts. However,
vehicles over twenty years old may be retitled in the present owner with
photos and suitable affidavits of ownership without reference to
the original source of the vehicle or identity plate.
