Default Door VIN sticker lost on a 95

Hey gents;

i already send an request out to jaguarclassicparts to see if they can help, but I was wondering if anyone has gotten a duplicate door VIN sticker made. Mine was lost when the car was completely stripped/ repainted with panel removal a few years ago. Although I have made some changes to my car, like changing the entire interior from code SDC (cream) to AFW (barley) , I would still like to have that original piece in my door as it should be. Thanks

I recreated the vin sticker on my '89. Not sure if it the same on facelift.

I'd also be interested to know.

Eons ago, when I worked in dealership parts departments, this was a fairly common request from body shops. I don't recall any manufacturer willing to provide replacement VIN labels, ever. No way, no how. They simply refused to 'go there'.

Things may have changed over the decades, though.

I can understand the reluctance of businesses to go there re reproducing something like a vin sticker and that it may be considered a bit like forgery.
However in today's digital world l don't think there would be much to prevent somebody jumping on a graphics program and producing an almost exact copy of the original. It's not like the vin number does not already exist other places on the car.

You might want to bookmark the E-bay shop for the Coventry Foundation. The Foundation rec. a generous gift of hundreds of the official labels/decals/stickers for Jaguar Cars from 1970 to 2000. They will start to be posted soon. www.coventryfoundation.org

I don't know if this business still exists or not but at one time they were duplicating labels that needed replacing when various panels were replaced because of wreck damage, autodatalabels.com If body shops sent photo of the label needing replaced they would replicate new one. No one else was doing this at the time something to do with the sticker in the door being governed by federal regulations. They were located in NY, if still in business be prepared for sticker shock as they were a little pricey being the only ones out there doing such.
This want do OP any good since he has no original to reproduce but for those contemplating repaints could be a source.
like someone else said with the graphic shops out here today I would be inclined to seek out some small printer and see if they would be willing to print the label for me.
One key thing to remember would be to stress that any info you give for reproducing be deleted from their computer afterwards, wouldn't want that info floating around for just anyone to get access to.

edit
they are still in business but only service collision shops so would have to get a shop to order them for yor

This is exactly what I'm doing now...getting the correct fonts is where all the effort goes.

I totally agree re fonts. I reproduced several of my own stickers on my XJRS (family have been printers for 130 odd years) but i can still see possible problems recreating a Vin sticker for a third party.
Do you have a web site or list of your labels?

As I'm not a paying advertiser on this site it is unfair and against the forum rules for me to directly promote my products.
