Have compared the writing to other examples of written numbers and it looks factory to me

Update and possibly some new information has come to light...

So my car is currently undergoing some long overdue fibreglass repair to the front end of the tub. Apart from the extent of the damage being far worse than we expected (there are areas where the fibreglass is completely missing and someone has replaced it with pieces of wood!) It's like one giant jigsaw, buy with missing pieces!

We have also discovered some interesting inscribing on the underside of the left fender… My first thought was Pilot 23, but that’s just the excited kid in me jumping to conclusions! Although it’s interesting that D23 still remains unaccounted for to this day… Can anyone make out the other scribbles to mean anything? Looks a bit like someone's initials?

Fascinating stuff nonetheless! :)

Interestingly, I showed the pics to my Dad (who comes from a manufacturing background) yesterday. Without hesitation he said these abbreviations could stand for…

RD - Research & Development
MRN - Material Receipt Note
