Different Cowl Markings

I was looking through some pictures for some reassembly and noticed these markings, no grease pencil letters or numbers like normal but I think the word (white) was written there at the time of red primer and has a stamped 3 digit number on the upper edge or the cowl. That number 675 is on the transfer case and the gas tank. Has anyone saw this type before.

Re: Different Cowl Markings

675 looks like the last three digits of the build sequence number to me (like "123675", or whatever). I have seen that before.

"White" would be a heads up to the painter so that he would know what color was coming up next.

Here are some of the threads I have accumulated that have to deal with graffiti, assembly line marking and grease pencil markings (if you are interested):

Re: Different Cowl Markings

Thanks guys, Keith interesting stuff on markings, mine must be a sequence number no vin or order number match.
