    Hi all,

    Could I get some pictures of how you have mounted your front number plates for some inspiration please?

    Trying to decide the best way to do it (My car is a US import with no front mount).

    Thanks,
    Simon

    What size plate are you hoping to use - standard or smaller? Square or rectangular?

    I'm considering my options at the moment Mike...

    I'm going for a US style square plate on the back, so I'd probably go for the same on the front, but I wanted to see what others have done.

    They actually look great Johnny... where did you get them made?

    And how are they mounted - to the front bumper?

    My original front bumper has mounting brackets on it for a no. plate, I presume yours are missing - or you're not having a bumper (or something)

    As a general point,in my 'limited' experience you can fit any old number plate you like cause the police aren't interested in the letter font of some 50 year old car being driven by someone of the same vintage.

    Indeed, they don't seem to care about 'wrong' plates on modern's round this way, so fill your boots! :D

    Ive walked past police cars sat in traffic behind cars with blatantly wrong plates, no one seems to give a toss!

    Thanks Mike, my car is a US import so I think that's why there isn't any mounting brackets there. Could you take a photo of the brackets on yours so I have an idea of what they look like?

    I drove past a police car with a 'legal' plate taped to the inside of the my windscreen and no bonnet the other day (I was driving somewhere to get the tracking set up) and they gave me some funny looks but that's it, so I'm not too worried about this!

    This is the front and rear of the stock US front bumper on my '72 - I'm guessing you've not got these brackets then, Simon?

    Thanks Mike, my bumper does not have these mounts, it's mostly likely a repro. It shouldn't be too difficult to fab up some brackets now I know where I want the plate to go.

    As you can see, my lower bumper has a slot moulded into it for a plate to be mounted.
