See a few posts above, there's atleast two sets of perfect font stamps in the country.

U could cut out a portion of the old bulk head where the number is and weld it in to the new one, a bit more work, but doable

As we know there are many import cars around with uk id's, so we tend to call them ringers, the bit I do not understand is whether you are welding or stamping the number in the panel how do you prove that the number belongs to that actual bodyshell that it has been put into ?

I don't have to prove it, I`me just the guy who supply`s or fits this panel , I guess its down to the owner of the Z to prove that the number on the new panel is legit

A question I feel I must ask - do you intend to make any other body panels or kits in the future?
