    Little program Ive been working on for the last 5 hours, I dont have all of the functions available yet, but I will eventually when I sink more time into it...the DSO's alone took almost 3 hours because some of them uses the same digit for different locations per model year...so I had to do each DSO sheet for each model year separately.

    It will decode both Mavericks and Comets

    If theres anything else that can be found out from a plate or something on the car point me in the direction to add the feature.

    Hope you guys get some use out of this, like I said its not fully complete...probably will take another 4-6 hours to get the color combos done.

    1.0.1 - Fixed yearly bug
    1.0.2 - Fixed bug where list wouldnt clear on multiple searches
    1.1.0 - Release Trim & Color decoding features for Maverick & Comets

    Sorry guys, its fixed now and its been re-uploaded.

    It has a few thousand lines of coding, theres bound to be a bug here and there, thanks for letting me know :D

    This one was simple:

    yearly1.caption didnt have the "1" in the name, thats what was tripping the error...it was like that for every year

    vinyl roof code will be with the body color

    dont think there's a code for any of the striping unless u have the build sheet

    How good are the "Yearly production numbers"?? Are you sure they are correct?
    Those numbers might be total production between all plants?
    My brown 73 was built in July, and to make 133727 cars after that would be a stretch, since most plants did yearly change overs in Aug or Sept..

    Yep, taken from here:

    http://maverick.to/grabber/mavchanges.html

    mean, do you have an example of a body code that has a vinyl top? Also, in the Maverick decode site they list codes for stripes, thats why I asked.

    Uploading the program with color and trim now available, itll be up in a minute

    the color code for my '71 is "JM"... J meaning Grabber Blue and M meaning Wimbledon White 'painted' top.

    i can get one from a vinyl top car if it would be a better example
