    Nigel, I'm not entirely sure but my mate got stopped last summer for speeding, he has a shortened rear number plate (with legal lettering & spacing), the police didn't mention the plate at all (maybe they didn't notice lol).

    Looking good Danny, looking forward to seeing it finished.

    You going to weld plates either side of the smaller recess? Didn't know if you might be using fiberglass/filler to make up the extra area but I'd seen you start with welding now!

    Re: US Style Custom Boot Lid

    It's such a shame that it's not easier to ship to and from USA. Over on audizine they all seem to want euro boots, would be nice if we could swap easier.

    I did consider buying a load and shipping them over ha! I bet you'd make a packet selling euro boots over there.

    Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    I was going to ask if you're going to wrap it in carbon... but I don't think that's your style...
