    I've looked all over the internet but no luck. Plus the likes of Halfords etc don't do them.They aren't illegal as they are the correct legal size and will have the correct spacing between the letters and the edge of the number plate. Trust me I know!

    Dont bother, I used to own F31STY which i got made up NP over the net without a space in between and it was the mobile camera that issued with a PCN @ 60 quid, within 6 months of fitting it.. Completely automatic procedure. Plod in themselves will never usually bother pulling you, but the cameras will, esp as they become more widespread.

    Ok then, there will be someone out there, check ebay and call them - someone will do it or find someone to trim the ends down etc..

    Plates are from ebay, I cut them down with a tile cutter:

    These plates are 100% legal, as I have correct spacing. 11mm border at all times.
