1. Plate Fitment
Went to the DVLA office today to get all the hoo-har sorted with the plates. Forgot the screwdriver to take the current plates off so went to it at home....
...the raised 'bits' that the screws go into make the plate not sit flush. I've slapped a load of trim tape on the back of the plate but it's definitely a no go!!! I press the middle in & the edges flap away a mile off the bodywork
Looks like i'm going to have to screw the buggers.
Is there any law as such on positioning of the plate? If i line the old plate up on top of the new plate & screw holes, then there'll be say, a screw in the middle of a "D" & it'd look a bit sh!t tbh. If i could slide it sideways a bit it could pass (i THINK)
Problem there is, everyone has theirs central & i'm wondering if shifting it over a bit will make it look sh!te.
2. Tax disc......
Have one of those metal tax disc holders. Put the new disc in it today & noticed the colouring of the 'clear' plastic piece is no longer clear & is in fact yellow due to the sun or something.
Makes the disc look a tinted colour. Any law regarding this? I can't be faffed taking any chances as my luck i'll have a do-gooder warden spot it or whatever if it's against the law.
Personally, i can't see what it matters 7 i suppose the chances are slim if there's some law, but i figured i'd ask
3. Trim removal tape.....
that duck stuff from Halfords. Now it's plastered all over the rear of my plates, well due to #1, it's useless, so i could do with it off, but this stuff sticks hard & fast!! Leave it on or is there a handy way of getting it off?
