I've been seeing quite a few Elises posted recently with the white or silver racing stripes and I think it looks stunning. Did you just have it done at a vinyl shop? If so, about how much did it set you back?

SCC is a, might I say, well known body shop that does, might I say, excellent work on cars.

Great job will keep an eye out for that car around town, that gas station is close to my house ! :up:

FYI: you might as well not have that cut front plate on there at all , you will get just as much of a ticket for having a modified
or altered plate as you will for having no plate ( Ask me how I know ) . The DMV considers license
plates state property - modifying them is as illegal as altering your drivers license

I believe that was done by the car's previous owner, but you are correct. That said, I've recently spoken to another owner who has folded his plate, and told it was OK by a number of meter maids.

Excellent will keep an eye out for you around town !

I did not run with a front plate at all for 3 years and never got hassled once. That is until our Angeles Crest run last month when 3 of us were all given no front plate tickets at a CHP checkpoint. I went out and bought a BWR bracket, installed it and showed the CHP it was fixed, went back to running no plate but left the BWR bracket installed and carry the plate in the boot. A cut or bent plate are still illegal according to the DMV and CHP. But the CHP cop did tell me that if it appeared to be accidental bending (as in bottoming out) you probably will not get hassled for it. But I doubt they would consider the top being bent back a accidental bend ;)
