Quick update on this: basically I can't get a UK supplier to produce these bespoke VIN plates. I was able to get a price when I sent the version with Japanese text on it as a sample. As soon as they know it's for a car, they won't touch it with a barge pole. I am still happy to supply a bespoke version as a decal to anyone who is interested. Just PM me all the details. There is no fixed price, just send a PayPal donation upon receipt. Whatever you feel it is worth.
