    It seems when you buy new ally plates they are really thin and flimsy so i made my own from some ally / plastic / ally laminate which used to be an old Grahams builders merchants goods in sign . Ultra light weight but very strong i made both plates for both cars from one sign

      The letters make a big diference Dave.

      Looking at how much they charge now per letter for proper ones wish i had collected more old number plates !

      Nice work, I did this on Mildreds but managed to recover the original back plate.

              So having referbed the switch panel back to light grey using a bit of a parts tray I fancied a white / cream / grey lighter to go in it . Saw one once in a 60s Cadillac so figured id find one .
              Yeh right - made of unobtainuim .
              So converted mine using one of the old drawer knobs of my late grans old kitchen cupboard
