Hello Robert, 

I thought you would like to know that the Data Plates have arrived all safe & sound with me today.

Firstly can I say how impressed I was with the way you have packaged them to prevent any possible damage during transit, really great.

Upon opening the packaging… well what can I say… you must really enjoy producing these Data Plates as it shows in the quality of your work, you certainly make a really superb product, fantastic quality, the best Data Plates that I’ve seen they will really add that special finishing touch to my refurbished Jeep once their installed. May I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your attention to detail using the stamps with the correct font for recreating the stamping to match how they were supplied by the factory, brilliant. 

Thanks again for all your help with producing these Data Plates for my Jeep, once I have my Jeep back & have them installed I’ll send some picture through if you’re interested. I will certainly be recommending your Data Plates to other people that appreciate a quality product & will recommend them to view your web site.

Let’s keep the history alive.

Best regards

Thank you!

After much research I chose Dataplates4u over all others for the data plates for my 1951 M38 jeep.  I worked with Robert to get an exact duplicate set of data plates for my 1951 M38.  This was done from photos of the original plates.  I would recommend anything Robert produces to anyone in all departments of quality, communications, shipping, etc. +++++++++!!!!!!

Gazel from the USA I just got the data plates yesterday, and they look great but honestly from your examples online I figured they would look great. The thing that really knocked me off my feet were the hood stencils they look great, and I never thought I would be able to find one as close to factory as this.

If I would have to quote in general for your services on a list from 0 to 10, I would rate it at 10 of 10 possible points, packing 10, execution of art work 10, historical correctness10, and instructions-hints for applying 10, paint color scheme recommendations 10.  

I wish you as many satisfied and happy customers as I am personally.  

I can only strongly recommend your services to the whole jeeper’s community (guys don’t look anywhere else)!  

The most distinguished and very best regards from an old, really enthusiastic “Jeeper”;  

Brian from the USA Dear Robert, Just wanted to say thanks for all your help and to also tell you how much I like my data plates.  They are absolutely perfect and my jeep will be so much more complete now!  It was definately a vital missing piece that totally sets it all off.  Thanks!!!   Look forward to doing business with you in the future.  Also, nice packaging job!!! Take Care.  Sincerely, Brian, Arizona U.S.A.
Roland from Austria
Hello Robert! 
Got your dataplates for GPW209xxx just yesterday.
Really amazing!!!!!! I expected high quality plates,
but these are 120%! Keep up your excellent work! 
David from France Gotta join in the crowd in thanking Robert for his plates.
Recently received mine - they were perfect.

And as a graphic designer I appreciate the detail in getting the type right. I compared them to the old replacement ones that the previous owner had fixed to the glove box through the wrong holes - no comparison.

Cheers Robert

Roland from Austria
Hello Robert! 
Got your dataplates for my GPW just yesterday. Really amazing!!!!!! I expected high quality plates, but these are 120%! Keep up your excellent work.
Geoff from England
Hi Robert,
Just a note to say I received your data plates this morning. And what a brilliant job you made of them !!!!!!!!!!!!
I would personally like to thank you for doing them. It is to the finer details that can make or break  a restoration as  well you know.
And your plates do make the perfect finishing touch, certainly I could never have done them anywhere as nice as you have, I guess it`s everyone to their own skill.
As regards the costs involved, all I can say, I don`t know how you can do it for the price when you take into consideration the initial costs of the plates themselves and the time involved.
Thank you once again.
Regards Geoff
Emil from Sweden

Marc from England I was talking to one of the "dealers" at Beltring who carries Roberts plates in the UK and he was saying that since Robert made him up a glove box door with examples of his plates on he has found them easy to sell, they are a little more expensive than "standard" plates but the quality and correctness of them make them a "nobrainer" when you have just spent $10,000 + on a restoration.
Howard from the USA I ordered a set of reproduction data plates from DATAPLATES4U in the Netherlands at and they arrived yesterday. The quality of his work is astounding. He has put a great deal of research and effort into his products and he can exactly match your vehicle for make and DOD. Even his packaging is perfect, all done by hand, and reflects his comittment to quality. Reproduction attaching hardware is also availiable. I can recommend him highly.
Chris from the UK wrotes; see
Bill from the USA I actually had guys convinced that Robert's plates were originals in very, very good condition. I told them they were repops and from Robert and one guy didn't want to believe me. You will not be sorry with his plates.
