Good morning Marcus,

I personally hate front Number Plates, I have been driving around in my Hotrod for 12 years with no front Plate.
For yours Under the Bumper in the middle looks good, offset looks like a mistake.
I have had Servo attendants loud speaker me no number plate no petrol so I just pull the plate out from behind the Seat and hold it up and then the Pump starts flowing.

Thanks guys.
If under it would be on a hinge.
I have now found out that above on the drivers side is factory for these.

Hi Marcus

We have surprisingly strict rules on number plate location and visibility.

Hinged plates won't comply with the requirements.

I've been busted for having the front number plate mounting in the intake of a vehicle where it was visible but not enough to avoid the fine.

Australia has some draconian motor vehicle regs.

For me the offset above the bumper on the driver's side looks right.

Marcus. In my country, you will could only ride in your own backyard. What was not made in the factory must not be on the road. Or there are such stupid and expensive packaging processes that it is better to buy a new luxury car and forget about your own ideas.

But I still remember a time when the blue lights in the rear window were slowly fading. Beautiful feeling when they can't and the their valves fly through their exhaust.
It was fun for us, but they had a problem with their superiors.
They just bothered with unnecessary checks, they wanted to chase us. Then catch me if you can. They did cannot.

Today it is no longer fast. But it's the other way around. They're following you to collect the fine. At the beginning of the city, they approach and push you to mark the city where the speed is reduced. We are outside 90km / h and in the city 50.
I go 90 (they push my car on a distance of about 3 m) and right next to the mark I have 50. In the mirror I see the two clowns glued to the window. I doing it very, very like and still. I did have no eny problems.

Freedom of expression is getting harder.

Metrix is really running. It is sad. Stupidity wins.

Back to shaping. You have it beautiful. Will you disassemble it before the varnish?
