    Angry Bloody Annoyed!!!!!!

    Well I went to put my shortened number plate on (which is short due to my private number being so few letters) and when I took the old number plate off, I notice that whoever had the car before had actually DRILLED holes through the boot so now I have two bloody holes either side of my number plate that look awful and are bound to rust! I don't know what to do now?????!!!!
    Just as well I noticed it, as even if I had a normal plate on, the holes would eventually rust!!!

    Either way, plastic or metal can be filled sanded and spray painted.

    Cant see why you dont know what to do, just get the holes filled & painted, a spot repairer can do that easily for such small holes, may need some blending on the bootlid but location isnt to bad, so colour may not be noticeable if slightly different & it was probably done by the dealer lol.

    Mine has 2 holes aswell but they look like they're there from factory as they are threaded? I just stuck my new plate on though.

    He did what??? Jeez.Some people need a kicking.Did he f^&K with the front as well?.Why not just use a standard reg plate with your number on, looks pretty odd with a short plate?
