    Got myself some nice pressed plates :)

    Now they are a bit heavier than i expected, So I am curious to how other people have fixed theirs to their cars.

    I usually fix my standard plates with adhesive tape, as I dont like to see the screw head cover things.

    Has anybody else fixed theirs on with adhevive pads? or have you screwed them on?

    Thanks guys and girls!

    Nope not pads! Will drop off eventually. Most use the surrounds partly due to weight, partly for looks (I know, not everyones cup of tea!)

    Screws work, may have to just accept it!

    Glad you got them, now you can go all private! welcome to the gang lol!

    Ive just got my metal plates made up. Still not put them on the car because I'm not too sure about using adhesive pads. I've read different stuff about the halfords thick sticky pads. Some say they're great, others say ****. People have also suggested strong velcro, which isn't really a bad idea but again I'm not sure.

    What do you reckon you're going to use to fix 'em, or what have others found best? Might get some surrounds but dunno if it's worth it.
