Here is what I am ordering for the front of mine... if you have some good ideas for plates... you can create your own too:
Not to be pedantic but you have ordered a German style metal plate with GB on the side of it. UK plates are plastic and white on the front and yellow on the back.

:shift:

This is a UK front plate. They are plastic and flat with no raised surfaces.



The German plates are metal and stamped in a similar way to USA plates.

95% of Americans, especially the idiots in my town will not know the correct format of a real British license plate.:)

Now, I have a serious question. When I get this plate... how on earth am I going to put it on the front? I see Black watch racing has a mount... but I don't want to spend another $50.00. Will Velcro rip my star shield off when I take my license off one day? I refuse to drill into my car.-poke-

You are correct sir :)

I would just go with Velcro, I know people that use that and it seems to work for them.

yeah but you're a lotus owner now. you have to worry about impressing the 5% that really matter ;)

i used 3M outdoor two sided foam tape. it comes off of paint without issue so i'm sure the same for star shield. this is how many people actually do it in the UK too.
