Well for me it's a little late... but; I have found an importable NAS Model 90 over here in Japan that I would like to take back home with me. The only thing it is missing is the bar code sticker on the drivers left side foot well. I AND friends that work for Land Rover Japan have mailed Soulihill numerous times with no response as to if and how to get a replacement. I can understand not replying to me but for Soulihill to ignore LR Japan.............

Anyway your working for a dealer won't help my case.

Land Rover will not re-issue the decals.
I've been down that road with some 97 built trucks last year, and US DOT/NHTSA now says the trucks are no longer importable without the decals. A dealer in FL had a few sent back due to lack of decals.

You have to remember that LR does not want those trucks in the USA, so they are not going to help you.
I heard from an inside semi-reliable source that LR couldn't reproduce those decals even if they wanted to. Something about the VIN, year and allocation or something. Not sure, but it seemed to make sense to me in order to keep "copies" of trucks being made.

Thanks to your mails I escaped a huge hassle!!!!!!! Thanks again! I was ready to buy until you mentioned the foot well bar code! I'll get you a beer some day.

I finally said screw it and am buying one stateside.
