Ive got some spanking new plates, done the whole transfer thing with those lovely people at the DVLA and....

...how the hell do you fit the rear plate to a 996? Anyone done it... I begrudge going to an OPC (they are rude enough on the telephone which is enough to put you off) and I dont want to f*** it up...

cheers if anyone can help

I'm not the most technical, but you just unscrew the old one & screw the new one back on. It's the same as the front. Well thats all I did anyway. :)

db, many are just taped on the rear with double sided adhesive pads, available from your local hlafords !

although getting off the odl tape is normally the hard part !

When you get the plates made up you should get sticky sided tape. You will have to pull the old ones off and they will be well stuck on. They are probably cheaper to order online.

Back one is normally double sided tape. My front one wouldn't stay on with it thought and it's now screwed on like normal......

Mine is as Scott's, when i swapped over plates they were both held on by doublesided tape. a very strong pull was reuired to get them off. The back is easy to stick on but the front being curved didn't take, so screws were required.

Place like "fancy plates" and like. All very similar, just make sure you get the UK legal plates as they will make up anything for you.

I am really tempted by black plates with grey lettering, think they would look good on my seal grey. shame they are only legal pre 73 cars and i am too chicken.
