Hi gents, hope you can help me.

I\'m collating a database of every Spirit R built, drawing on catalogs, brochures and websites for information.

I have most of what I need, but I\'d like to try and find some door frame VIN decal pictures to validate some of my data.

We have quite a few Spirit R\'s in Australia, however the local authorities are removing the decals when the cars are imported, so I\'m having difficulties sourcing pics.

Ideally I\'d love to find a Type A, Type B and Type C VIN decal, however I\'ll settle for anything at this stage!! Each decal will have differing information, hence the reason for chasing all three types.

Cheers :cool:

Here\'s a pic of a version six RB decal to illustrate what I\'m after:

I think there are only 2 Spirit R\'s in the whole UK and not sure the owners visit the forum much.

OIC....I thought there\'d be oodles of them!

Fair enough, I\'ll continue my search closer to home.

Cheers :).

Unfortunately our import laws in the UK have pretty much prevented us from road registering a spirit R, except for for those very quick off the mark :(

Since I posted this thread, I\'ve come over to the possibility that the Spirit R may never have had a drivers doorframe VIN decal (which is odd, as all other S8\'s had them).

Special "grey import" cars (like the 99-02 FD\'s) get issued with a new VIN number on arrival. It\'s basically the JDM VIN with a 6U90000 added as a prefix.

I know spirit R\'s had a special plate on the bulkhead of the engine bay, the other side to the normal vin plate.

Yep, got a few pics of those.

The info I wanted to get from the decal included the model-spec code, in the bottom LH corner.

That\'s not on the plate, unfortunately.
