I have an original switch panel trim. I’m away for another week though if you want pics.

Talk to Tim at Minimail for your plates. He's just done some for me.

Pretty sure I have an original switch panel trim, and may have some belts. Will have a look.

I recently have had Boxweed Bob do a run of vin and engine plates for my projects and friends, He has the correct machine and they are great. I ordered the plates Austin and Morris as well as engine plates from MSC blank. It is very helpful if you have the original plate or a picture. He requires you have some proof of ownership and provide the correct spacing. I have some purchased from Mini Sport with incorrect spacing. It's best to figure spacing from old vin as here the titles use back slash rather than dash. Bob charges $20 per tag and blank tags, self addressed stamped mailer. But he is located in Ga. USA.
