Well what blows me away is that they ask for all this info, which is all well and good, but then some of the stuff is still blank. I sent the one for the XJ12c in, and they didn't record the dealer it went to, or the original owner. Now granted, I know who the owner was but have no idea which of the 2 (at the time) dealerships it came from. Sadly, that's the info I wanted the most.

I think that is the “body” number Don. They shouldn’t need this info, surely?

Your VIN should be found in three places.

On a sticker inside the door aperture Lower B post, of the LHF door.

Inset into the lower front left windscreen.

Stamped into the metal on the inner RH wing.

That’s what I thought, how much info do they want ?? Surely chassis/vin and engine number is all they need ??

Well with my XJ12c, they wanted every number that was stamped on the car. Here's it's number plates that I had to submit.
