That came out really well. I've been real careful to mask that off the 3 times I've painted my engine bay though lol.

Why not just drill out the rivets, remove vin plate, paint engine bay, then rivet the vin plate back in place? I only say this because a reproduction vin plate is sketchy concept.

This may be boarderline illegal. It's tampering with a VIN...BUT....you are just making it MORE legible....so yeah idk. Kinda like reproducing a license plate, you have to have a replacement issued to you.
