There are two easy methods for fitting your plates. View the video’s below and decide which one is best for you

METHOD 1 – FITTING USING STICKY PADS

TOOLS NEEDED

  • Three Sticky Pads from fitting kit
  • A Phillips Screwdriver

HOW TO FIT

  • Remove the caps on your existing plate.
  • Unscrew the screws affixing the old plates
  • Now your old plate has been removed, take the three sticky pads from your fitting kit and stick to your new number plate in three equally spaced positions – one at each end and one in the middle.
  • Carefully align where you want your new plates to go on your vehicle.
  • Then carefully remove the second lot of backing from the stickers so the adhesive pads are tacky and ready to be affixed. Then press the plate firmly to the vehicle to stick.

METHOD 2 – FITTING USING SCREWS

TOOLS NEEDED

  • A Drill
  • A Phillips Screwdriver

HOW TO FIT

  • Remove the caps on your existing plate.
  • Unscrew the screws affixing the old plates.
  • Place the old number plate on top of your new one and use it as a guide to measure where the holes need to be drilled (into the new plate). Then lay the new plates face down and the old ones on top – drill through the holes and into your new plates.
  • Fix the plate to your vehicle using the screws – tighten to secure the plate securely.
  • Place the caps over the screws and press firmly. Remember to colour code your caps – so if where you have drilled is yellow, use the yellow caps, if it’s black, then use the black caps. This will make your numberplate looks untouched and cover up any of the marks made by drilling the plate.




Are 3D Number Plates legal?

3D or two-tone effect is perfectly legal on a UK registration plate.  In order to make entirely sure your gel number plate is compliant with UK legislation, the characters must conform to the standard specifications described in the regulations but an approved plate-maker will be well aware of these.  The 3D domed gel finish is compliant with UK law.

Do 3D Number Plates pass the MOT?

A car’s number plate is one of the points listed for testing on the current annual MOT.  A car can fail with what is called a ‘major’ if the plate is so insecure it is in imminent danger of falling off or the registration number is actually incorrect, the plate has not been made to comply with UK legislation or it is illegible either obscured by dirt, cracks or chips.  Gel Number Plates will pass the MOT but only if they do not infringe the failure categories just described, for example, a gel number plate that is cracked or very dirty could constitute an MOT fail.

How are 3D Number Plates made?

The first step is to print and then cut out the correct, legally compliant characters so the letters and numbers which will be used to form the registration.  Next top quality resin is applied to these and they are then baked in a low heat oven, purpose-built for the task in order to ensure there is no bubbling from the gel resin.  The characters are then removed from the oven and left to cool and solidify.  Once they are ready, the adhesive backing is peeled away and they are placed on the plate.  As a final flourish, they are put through a roller to ensure they are completely smooth without the doming suffering any ill effects or blistering.

+ Our 3D Number Plate Manufacturing Process
+

With the phrase ‘3D’ evoking visions of letters sprouting from your number plate, it raises questions of what 3D number plates really are, how they are created and importantly, whether they are road legal. There’s a reason they’re growing in popularity, so let’s dive into why our high-quality, durable 3D gel plates are one of the latest accessories to be snapped up by avid car-enthusiasts.

How do they differ from standard 2D number plates? Think of your typical number plate, but with raised black lettering. The reflective background, dimensions and format remain the same, however, the characters appear more pronounced and glossy due to the innovate manufacturing techniques, giving them a more aesthetically appealing look, prized by automotive fanatics.
