Vehicle Registration plate

Postby richard4951 » Wed May 13, 2009 10:04 pm

my car's vehicle reg plate usually found on inner wing is missing. it was not there in 1983 when I bought car , I believe the car had a new wing fitted in the past and it was presumably never replaced. I have the original log book etc so believe the car to be genuine. How do I go about obtaining a replacement plate complete with chassis number etc stamped on. I purchased a blank plate at a spares day but don't know the official way of getting it stamped.

Find someone with a set of letter / number punches & just do it.....there is no hallmark or seal! :D

Hi Richard

Most engineering shops will have a set of stamps but if you don't know anybody then you'll probaly have to pay the going workshop charge rate, which is usually a lot less than garages and main dealers charge.

If you feel like doing it yourself Screwfix sell a set of 4 mm high letter and number stamps for £12.26. You probably couldn't do a worse job than whoever stamped my Daimler's plate in 1969.

Good Luck
