1975 CJ-5 Frame VIN location

I have a 1975 CJ-5 with a fiberglass tub. About 1997 the previous owner did a complete restoration and put the fiberglass tub on it then. So there's no VIN on the firewall. There's no VIN on the windshield frame (which I was told is from a 1976 CJ-5). So the only spot left is the passenger side frame rail, but I cannot locate it.

Where exactly should I be looking? The frame was sand blasted during the rebuild so its not super dirty. Perhaps it's been sand blasted to heck. I don't know.

Thanks

Nobody has any advice on where to find the VIN on the frame?
Is it on the top, outside, inside?

Here's my 77' Just about directly above the rear axle. Front is to the right in the pictures. Also found a guy that will replicate the VIN sticker on the dash. Not perfect but unless you look at it side by side you can't tell it's a copy.

His name is Bob Hoyt. Web page www.inspectionsticker.net. Only cost $35.

I found the VIN. It's a partial VIN with the first letter and the last 7 or so digits.

It was located on the top of the frame rail, passenger front.

Thanks for everyone's help.
