    How is your front number plate secured on?

    Screws
    Stuck on
    Number plate holder

    Currently have two rusty screws on original plate but will be putting private plate on it

    Not a big fan of screws but the front bumper is quite curved so not sure if sticky tabs will hold in place like the rear

    Anyone got number plate holder?

    Gently heat the front plate up and bend it slightly so it has a more natural curve to it before sticking on.

    The place i get my custom plates from supplies a set of plates with colours plate fixings and heavy duty double side tape.

    All my plates get taped on as I hate screws, haven't had one fall of yet and I put a set of plates on every vehicle I buy as I have had a private plate for the past 15 years. I don't transfer the plates I have new ones made as I custom label them for the car.

    Design and order reflective acrylic licence number plates
