How to Fit Show Plates or Number Plates

Fitting our show plates or number plates could not be easier. When purchasing a plate from us we offer our convenient fitting kit that will allow for simple application of your new plate to your vehicle.

Below you have two methods of affixing your new show plate or number plate to your vehicle along with video tutorials.

Fitting a Number plate or Show Plate with Sticky Pads

METHOD 1 – FITTING USING STICKY PADS


Tools need:

  • 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.

Fitting a Number plate or Show Plate with Screws

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.
