Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

You may have difficulty with the sticky number plate as the area your sticking it to is curved in 2 planes.

So youll get gather up of material, hence the ripples on the bottom edge, the "non-sticky" just makes it worse. If it was hot or the adhesive was better you may end up with little creases or wrinkles.

Just saying  :-[

Ahhh i just realised on old bumper i put number plate higher up on flat bit....and it had no number fixing holes init which is why i put it lower to cover holes...and i didnt tell painter to block holes up....
What a dum dum. Ive got a tatty old efini badge...and maybe nut inserts to bolt an import plate on...else i got unsightly holes...
Doh.

I'm not  sure if you can get a number plate in what's known as "cast vinyl" I think it's a bit more workable with a hot air gun.....

If it's worth a call to a local logo maker...... Just a thought
Its just Rotors and GRP
