Original RPO codes

I just recently found out that I could go to my local GM dealer with my VIN and they could print out several sheets of paper listing all my original RPO codes with a description of what they are. The VIN under my console lid didnít match the carís VIN so we know someone has changed it. Do you know of anyone that would generate an original looking RPO sticker for a reasonable price? I suppose I could try and make my own with the same font now that I have the info.

Re: Original RPO codes

I made mine using an excel file. Came out pretty close to the original label I used *** the template. After I had all the info on it, I printed it on thick stock paper and used packing tape to neatly place it back in the original location. My original became worn and roached after about 10 years of reaching into the console for stuff. This one allowed me to pull off and keep the original and replace it. It has lasted 18 years now and still looks good. If you send your email, I will copy the file and send it to you. You can then alter it for the codes of your car and crate a new label. The file also contains Mfr's ID label and a Tire Inflation label that would go on your door frame. Sorry the picture is pretty fuzzy but you can see the basics.

Here is a better image of the SPID label I created in excel. If more people would like it, reply or send a PM with your email address.
