My favourite picture in that listing (which I'd never even thought to look up, unsurprisingly) is the VIN plate. Most companies would use precision engraving and CAD to stamp out the VIN number to make it easy to spot if were to be manipulated. TVR however?
Just get Barry to write it all out with a dremel, it'll be fine. I wouldn't be surprised if a few numbers got mixed up on more than a few of these plates over the years either.
