Hey Viper owners. A few years ago I bought an 08 Viper coupe with the aero package (ARY). When I bought it, there was an issue with the window trim on the passenger side. I finally got around to fixing it, and when I removed the door panel, I discovered multiple signatures and markings hidden inside the door. One looks very similar to the “Carroll” in a Carroll Shelby signature. But I have no idea about the others. Has anyone seen this before? Can anyone identify the other markings or shed some light on why the inner door was signed to begin with?

I don't think that's a Shelby signature. If you take part Vipers you'll see the guys at the plant signed there names in various places on some Vipers. My '94 front facia has some names on the back side.

Looks like "Cornell" to me. As Mike said, it was very common for craftspeople at the plant to sign or initial panels.
