Nothing winds me up more than fitters who don't put registration plates on straight. Its not as though the manufacturers don't put guide holes in the bodywork for them.

But 2 things puzzle me - how do they know where the guideholes are when they place a new plate over them ready to drill? And, how do they stop the hole from rusting when they've drilled a hole through it?

Hmmm............does the fridge light turn off when the door is closed :? ?

Answers on a postcard please :)

My plates are stuck on with large double sided sticky pads would you believe. If I ease the front one out slightly on the end, I can see the pads that are holding it on. I was a bit worried about it at first but after 5 monthes of owning the car they still seem solidly fixed. :D

The tailgate is metal but the outer painted part is plastic (have a look / feel).
I've had a few stuck on plates in the past and a few fall off too, go for a proper screw fixing it's much safer.
