Size is not an issue (despite what some may say ;-) ) . It has to be able to be read from the front offside of the car. I stamped the number into two places, the top offside rail and the engine mount area. Then I fitted the car sides and the top rail number was covered - next I fitted an MX5 engine where I had previously had a Pinto engine. The new engine mount covered the stamped in number. I gave up. I stamped up a piece of 25 x 3 mm steel with 20 mm high numbers and waited until the end of the build and then welded it in a prominent position by the brake master cylinder - sorted!
