Hi all, I’m new to the xj scene and this site.
Shame to hear it won’t be here much longer but I hope someone can help me with my issue.
I have recently bought myself a 1995 xj600s (UK) diversion.
Unfortunately it seems the 17digit vin sticker has been removed due to unknown reasons, the only number I have left is the riveted on plate and stamped 9 digit.
I’ve done a hpi and matched the last 5 digits to the current frame number which I believe is a good start.
I need the 17digit version for applying for a new logbook as the previous owner never received it when he bought the bike.
Everything so far looks legit based on the hpi; I have tried but to no avail created a matching 17 vin from the 9
Long question short is it possible to convert the 9 digit to 17?

The 9 digit is 4BR-212432,
colour is VDBM,
Says 4BRA-050 on a sticker on the frame.

I really hope someone can help.
Thanks in advance, Morgan
