    Best donor bumper for number plate recess?

    I think I may have asked this before, but what ideas do people have on which donor bumper to use for a number plate recess?

    I have seen Vectra ones used, but that is a little deep for my liking. My first thought was one from a Lupo as it's perfectly number plate sized and would be easy to blend in and light up. Other than that i thought about a Ford kak one.

    Any other ideas? It has to be a donor bumper from ABS as i'm not patching a GRP one into a plastic bumper only for it to crack in a month's time

    You know the one

    Enquire within

    You might as well just pop to the scrappers and rip off the first bumper that takes your fancy
