    Black pressed number plates

    Hi Guys. I bought some show plates last week which were delivered yesterday. My car is predominantly black so I thought some black plates to put on for pictures, during meets and such likes would be pretty cool! All in all I think it looks awesome. here is a picture with the front plate on. What do you think ? If you have any better methods for sticking on these plates other than using blu tac please let me know. Thanks1.jpg

    Black pressed number plates

    You could always buy number plate surrounds from eBay then its a simply remove plate and replace with show plate.

    I see 2-3 cars a week illegally using black/silver plates so it doesn't look like anyone's bothering to enforce that law -like illegal spacing - bloke passed me yesterday (I was walking by the way not being overtaken) with the reg FISH X and I also saw 2000 GB both of which were illegally spaced.

    For me it's just not worth the risk. Yeah I see illegally spaced plates more and more each day. With the targets that police have to make you would think that people would be getting hammered for this. Or is it just a reflection of the knowledge of the Police? Or are they actually doing things to benefit the community for a change?

    Yeah man I used blu tac for the centre caps in my last car but the way the pins are on the front plate makes it hard to get the plate to stay on. Quite annoying because the back one is sound
