RV8 windscreen VIN etch template
Dr Gavin Bailey
(BRG 0766) from Surrey has provided a short note on the VIN etch template.
Ive attached a photo of the VIN etch template from my car
two templates were supplied to the first owner when the car was new.
I think the templates were probably in the small A5 owner's portfolio
along with the dealer card and owner's handbook.
The templates were provided to allow the VIN to be etched onto the
windscreen if ever it needed to be replaced. Needless to say the fitter
of a replacement screen would only be able to do it if they had access
to the VIN template from the owner and access to the necessary acid
to etch the glass or a subcontractor who could do this for them.
