    Question Flush Tailgate

    I am looking to flush the tail gate on my mk4 astra some time soon.Is there anything i should know regarding the law? E.g. does the number plate have to lit like it currently is? Any other information that may be of use to me would be very much appreciated?

    Collecting my car sometime tomorrow as I`ve just had the tailgate flushed on my astra g.

    As already been said, the numberplate must still be lit up in some way and the numberplate light bolts are ok as long as you wire them to come on with your headlights, and don`t have them on all the time.

    You dont have to use TVR plates, Fancy plates sell opaque plates for around £18 a pair and the back light is a fird part but It dosent come to mind at the moment.
    the plate can be mounted pretty much any were on the rear as long as its lit up.
    Lumma sell a number plate recess panel so a recess can be fitted to your bumper to allow the number plate, but a scrap bumper from the breakers that has a recess may be cheeper
