ID engraving with drill bit stippling

. after hearing that ID theft precluded the use of
state ID numbers being engraved on property,
I decided to use my email address
stippled into the main parts of my vehicle frame with a drill bit .
. I laid sealing tape down, wrote on the tape,
then drilled tiny holes guided by the ink .
. the tape might have helped hold the drill bit on the intended spot
and if I messed up the pen work, it'd be easy to start over .
. this email address can be associated uniquely with me via google,
and may do so indefinitely, since although it could dry up,
I think it quite unlikely that gmail.com would both
disable my account and give it to someone else .
