Conversion midway lost data plate above driver?

So, I was elbows deep in removing all the metal skin on the walls and ceiling and didn't notice the data plate above the driver seat took a trip to the scrap yard! I still have all the original paperwork for the 1982 Blue Bird, but will this be a problem getting a tag or title or some other unseen problem?

Get a die set from Harbor Freight and put your vin somewhere in case anyone ever looks.

Most all of the Vintage Auto Parts houses sell replica data plates that you fill in yourself. And tons of them on FleaBay. Here is one...

NEW Blank Trailer Truck Equipment VIN frame Plate Serial Model # ID Tag GVWR

I am going to engrave a "custom" plate fro mine.

Order one of these: NEW Blank Trailer Truck Equipment VIN frame Plate Serial Model # ID Tag GVWR | eBay

Then take it to your local tropy shop or send it to me for engraving.
