HELP NEEDED!!! - Door Jamb Stickers

I got hit a few months ago and my driver side door needed to be replaced (luckily the impact was light and all the damage was isolated to that door only). Does anybody have any ideas on how to get replacement door jamb stickers (the ones on the inside of the door that have VIN, tire pressure, weight info, etc.) for a 2002 Z06? :-? So far all I've been able to get out of GM is a letter from that documents the information that the stickers contain. Sure doesn't do much for authenticity or resale :(

Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks.

I believe it will be impossible to get any kind of sticker with a vin.# Your best bet is to call GM. Good luck!

How about the cool sticker on the door jamb that says "Corvette. The Legend Lives" put on at the factory. I bet someone at the factory or NCM might be able to help you. Might be worth a try.

you can get door stickers from bowling green but they only have them for the current production year. in fact, they only keep the data available for ~6 months and then it gets archived.

best bet is to have the body shop cut out around the old sticker and then scan it and print your own labels.

Is your old door still accesible to you? You might be able to transfer them (especially the one with the VIN#) to your new door.

Thanks to everybody for the suggestions. To my dismay, you've all confirmed what I've been able to figure out myself. I was holding on to a slight bit of hope that someone out there may have known some obsure solution to my problem, but it seems like I'm pretty much screwed.

So, with that realization, I need to figure out how much this degrades the value of my car since the lack of authenticity likely negatively impacts resale value. Anybody have any thoughts on this? I need to come up with a number (a reasonable one unfortunately) to give the insurance company of the person that hit me so I am adequately compensated for this intrinsic loss in value.

There are a couple of companies that do reproduction decals , stickers, labels and will even reproduce the original window sticker.

These companies advertise within the vintage and restoration market and you will have hunt for them.

The fact that your car will not have the door stickers will not hurt its value. The fact that it has been in a accident and repaired will.

There are to many Z06's made to have any collectible value, At least not in next 20 years.

No on will reproduce any kind of a sticker with a vin#! As far as resale YES it will hurt. With stickers that are not there it throws up a red flag to anyone half a brain looking for a vette. Dont play around. Be honest and everything will be OK.

I would be surprised if anyone looking to buy your car would even notice the stickers were missing. It's not old enough. They'd be looking for dents, scratches, and "excessive" orange peel that would indicate an accident.

Forget the sticker... They all fall off anyways.

Nothing missed by a new owner.

Re: HELP NEEDED!!! - Door Jamb Stickers

Go to autodatalabel.com

You must have a picture of label even if it's only a small portion. If you had a picture it would be better. Theses guys can do it, but only if you have a portion of the label they can read. They are the only federal agency that can do it. If you have no label they will not help.
