Looking for some ideas from the mud squad. I just swapped the badly damaged drivers door on the 80 with one from donor vehicle. Any suggestions on how to move the original VIN sticker to the new door?
I tried the boiling water trick but that just allowed the clear plastic protective film to come off. I'm out of ideas....need help

@cruiserdan IIRC once mentioned that there may be a (long) process for ordering a new VIN sticker???

There are also companies that will apparently reproduce your original sticker (never bought one myself).


Here's one example:

That label is not coming off without completely destroying it. That would totally defeat the purpose of a "permanent" label.

The intact label needs to be surrendered to to get a replacement. The best way to do it is cut it out of the door.

Do not attach it to the truck. Store it in a safe place until you resolve the replacement process.
