Engine Compartment Tags
« on: January 11, 2023, 20:13:50 »
I would like to replace some of the metal tags in the engine compartment - the stamped metal tag on the fender skirt, the VIN tag on the firewall and the smaller tag on the engine itself.  Does anyone have a source where you have gotten these tags?

I don't know of anybody doing a better job on the metal tags than him.
In Germany though.

hello Harry, I agree with Achim. Memmo produced all three of these tags for me (VIN plate, body/paint plate, engine plate). He does amazing work - you won't be disappointed.
His website: http://pagode-markt.de/ and email: info@pagode-markt.de.

Excellent - thanks.  The website is obviously in German.  How did you communicate?

Memmo is a member of this Group. Try sending him a Personal Message/PM- it may be quicker.

Good. I'll need you here before 6:00 PM to explain why we can't keep 6 cats in the house.

Hello Mike, i'd be eternally grateful if you can also have a word with my Rottweiler, as he clearly doesn't understand English!

Mike,


I have been hugging my trees in the back garden but something is lost in the communication and they are still not looking well. Clearly I need your help to have a talk to them about climate change.

Garry? Did you hug the big oak tree in my school yard when you were here? It takes three people to be able to touch each other's hands. Now that's a tree!

Who needs the explanation. The cats? Or the wife?
