Metal nameplates that ID inlets & outlets

I'm looking for some of the aluminum nameplates that ID the system components and hatches etc. The style I'm looking for are like those in the picture below.




What I'd like is anything that would ID the "Waste water" or "Gray water" outlet and some that would ID a 110 V or so electrical connection.

Please let me know what you have. Pictures help.

Thanks,
Roy

Scamp sells the stick on metal finish decals in their parts store and they hold up pretty well.

Thanks Eddie,

I saw those previously, I even went to Scamps suppliers web site to see if the style posted above was still available. I am trying to match what is on my trailer already.

I'll use the ones from scamp as a last resort.

What I'd really like to get my hands on is one of these FMVSS plates, or something similar.

Considering I am the one that has rescued my trailer from an almost certain death and rebuilt it with many upgrades. I consider myself to be the manufacturer ... well, in a way.

Roy, you didn't ask for alternatives to the metal labels and for all I know, you may need those for a restoration true to original right down to brass tacks. If now or in future you need weather-proof stick on labels for utility thru-hulls or instructions for operation of anything from shower heads to inverters, I don't think there's anything better than the Brother PTouch label makers which "develop" the message on (or in) laminated tape. With a bit of degreasing and dewaxing (you know the drill) they stick well to gelcoat and weather well. I used the 1/2" tape so labels tended toward a long and narrow aspect ratio but tape up to 1" wide is available. Certainly the best alternative for "custom" text such as DO NOT MESS WITH THIS BIG RED BUTTON; NOTHING GOOD WILL HAPPEN or YOUR MOTHER IS NOT YOUR MAID; HANG UP YOUR TOWEL!! or INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE OPERATION OF THIS SHOWER WAND NOT AVAILABLE.

I second the Brother Ptouch recomendation

I also really like this inexpensive unit!

PC Connectable Label Maker | Computer Label Printer

Just the cheap one has done what I needed...

Thanks Jack,
I'll keep that in mind for labelling the interior electrical. There is / was nothing there.
It is real nice when someone suggests something that can be used as a business expense.

Try marine suppliers. They make things stainless even for the interior of the boat, though I don't know if you'd find those particular things.
