WANTED- Blank Mk3 VIN Plate

Postby WeeksyCapri43 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 10:51 am

Looking for a blank VIN plate like the reference picture below. Mine has unfortunately bubbled and snapped at the rivet points, lets the new paint down alot.

Tried looking for them all over but cant find them anywhere.

err.....help!

Thanks for the thread, i did check it and unfortunately the product is no longer available. Quickly checked Ebay again and one has just been put up.
However it is a auction and id honestly just prefer to buy it as soon as. Asked the seller so we'll see.

Hi,
The plate you mention on Ebay is about to end and is currently at £64, that's not a bad price to pay for one, in my opinion.
If you don't win that one, it's worth frequently checking Ebay as they seem to come up for sale fairly often. Have a look through the completed listings to give you an idea of what they sell for.
