    Number plate trimming ?? Pressed plates..

    Thinking of cutting the grooved edges off my pressed plates To make them a little smaller and more like the continental flush pressed plates!

    Why..........

    Once you have put it on square it should look ok
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    That pic is about 8 months old but it was the only one I could see with a proper front end close up!

    Dont worry, it has been rectified!

    Thinking maybe a mini plate..

    Im currently retrimming my door cards should hopefully get the car going again on saturday, have to get a gasket from vauxhall for the new thermostat as the onyl they gave me is completely wrong.


    Anyway leave the plates as they are, too good to chop
