I tried to put in international and they still were charging me VAT so I was dubious.

Be careful when ordering from them! I bought a plate from them a few years ago & they sent it to me with the black enamel still on the back of the plate!

When i questioned them about this, the guy told me to just take a belt sander to it! lol

Why not just refinish yours? I cleaned mine up, painted it black then took some rather fine sand paper and removed the black paint from all the raised surfaces. It looks like new and was dirt cheap. Just takes a little time, but really not even that much. Obviously this won't solve Shawn's problem, but for anyone just looking to dress up their original one, this is a cheap, easy, and IMO perfectly acceptable way to handle the problem.

I powder coated mine and then sanded the top. Looks like new.

Just curious, if you were to buy a new plate, how would you get "your number" engraved on the plate? I'm not seeing anything on the website that clarifies.

You need to get a set of punches from somewhere like McMaster-Carr. I've been putting off buying a set but I want need to. I'd be happy to stamp anyone's plates if they wanted. I'd promise to try as best as possible to replicate the sloppy placement and misalignment of the OEM stamping!

I have a friend who put his last name on the replacement plate instead of the number
