MG TD TF 1500 - Chassis ID plate
|For a car missing it's original ID plate (actually with a phony one in place) I am in need of a repop. Can anyone direct me to the best quality plate, and who can stamp it properly? I understand that it will probably always look like a reproduction, but it's worth getting the best quality possible, I think.|
Ideally there would be someone out there who could cut out the original number panels, braze in new metal, and stamp per original.
|Someone here had lovely ones made last year......|
|Ah, yes, but who?|
|Here is an original
|and the replacement I bought off feebay. Bought a set of dies and stamped it myself. The font isn't exactly right but close enough for me. The Moss plate is all wrong and I have no idea why they continue to sell it.
|LaVerne - that looks better than the ones I have seen. Do you remember the source?|
|Sorry Tom, I don't recall and my records just say ebay. I used to see these all the time on there.|
|LaVerne, maybe it was the guy who makes TD brass radiator plates. I think he is in New Mexico but my mind is blank after saying all I know.|

|Probably Doug Pelton- From the Frame Up. I got the carb and fuel pump tags from him. George|
|Well, the link won't work, so try www.fromtheframeup.com, then catalog, then click on pg. 19. George|
|...I thought it was someone from overseas...Europe?|
|Also try Clark Spares and Restoration at: http://www.clarkespares.com/ He does various name plates with original lettering. Cheers - Dave|
|I don't think so. I seem to remember it coming from eastern Canada near the USA border someplace. Of course I could be wrong.|
