VIN tag restoration help

I've been trying to figure out how to recreate the body id tags for my car. Any help would be appreciated. I called and talked to Sunset and they said that they could sell the front metal VIN tag and the rear options sticker specific to my car but that they would both just be vinyl stickers and $170 each? Would be nice to confirm if that is all Porsche can offer from someone else.

Here are some examples of what I need - these are off other cars of course.

How long have you got? We just got an engraver so I will have to play with it see if I can replicate what you are looking for.... We can do printed Vinyl decals as well, be pretty hard to get an exact recreation of those old decals on todays equipment. If you are intereseted I can have the lady that does our design work(AKA MOM) play with them a little bit and see how close she can get....

Erm, you may wish to put a call in to DMV before fabbing a VIN tag. . .The Man may take a dim view of this.

That would be great! I can figure out exactly what I need to have printed on the options tag.

I can share a copy of the title in my name and a picture of a VIN tag that wasn't removed on the car so that anyone helping me is covered. For legitimate restoration/accident repair I would think this type of work is done all the time.

You could be correct, Josh. It just seems worth a quick call. . .we wouldn't want you accidentally committing a felony.

Certainly wouldn't want to do anything illegal - just trying to restore a car I own free and clear. I found a company www.datatags.com and emailed them about redoing the metal tag for me.

If you can do this i'm also interested in recreating my option code tags.
Let's do a group buy

Josh, these guys reproduce the 944 body tags. VIN sticker, US market only, 911, 928, 924, 944 (1986 – 1995) | Car-Bone.pl and the paper sticker Warranty book and under hood paper stickers, 911 (1986 – 1989) | Car-Bone.pl but they dont specify for the 944. Also have the hard to find paint code decals.

I got a few decals from them, good quality fast shipping. Better quality than some of the decal sets you see on Ebay
