Evening all,

Guys, I'm going a bit mental here... for the life of me I can't find the chassis/vin plates to rivet back on to the body. I see they have them on the minispares website.. are they easy to get stamped?
Is it possible to make one up out of bare steel? Or does it need to be the correct/actual badge. Im hoping to get it through an mot in the next few days and this is panicking me now as I've torn the place apart looking for the old ones..

I just took the mini out for its first spin since rebuild. Very local as not 100% legal... cant stop smiling *happy*

Is it A-Series only? I think it should be...
So when some joey comes on here about how his 16v turbo vauxhall is great compared to ours, he can be given the 'bird'...

In fact I think its still on the car so it would have been mot'd 4 times at 2 different places like that. I did it temporary until I ordered a replacement vin plate but I dont think I ever got round to it

As long as it's marked clearly it's fine. I stamped a bit of stainless for an old car of mine.

the design shows a distinct lack of imagination,
talk about starting off with a clean sheet of paper, then not bothering to fucking draw on it,lol

No need to panic 🙂

I got the plate for a couple quid then borrowed some the letter stamps off a mate and knocked up a few pieces of wood so that it would keep them straight... looks pukka

I've got the same issue over a 5 year rebuild including putting them in a "safe place" haha
Thinking about ordering from them but abit worried about the ordering form asking you to write down all your card details! Haha
Did you pay over the phone?
And if we could see some pics of the finished product that would be great
(Albeit with some blurred numbers if you like)

Don,t know how mini ones are done, but on my ancient blue blobule the VIN plate is "reverse stamped" so not so easy to reproduce - although I did get it done for the van.
