For example, when an engine or engine part needs to be located it is essential to supply information such as the engine size as the pistons, cylinder sleeves, bearings and cylinder head gaskets may be required in over or under size.

These tags are often riveted to the firewall, pillar posts, under the dashboards and on fender posts and even tagged on seat belts with either embossed, stamped and or printed information about the motor vehicles status.
