Rear number plate plinth

Postby Simont485 » Sun Jan 21, 2018 9:31 am

Hi all

I'm looking for a rear number plate plinth. Not sure of the condition of mine as it has an oversize number plate on it.

Would like to put it back to normal.

Yes I do....I think the plate is stuck onto the surround so would it damage it if removed?

i have quite a few brand new Genuine jaguar stainless steel numberplate surrounds for sale if interested ,

these are not chrome, but highly polished stainless steel that will not tarnish , i think Jaguar sell them for about £40 all in , mine will be much cheaper , though exactly the same

It’s worth noting there is a painted black version often found on late models. These can and do rust quite badly. The stainless ones are clearly a better idea.
Simon appears to have the black version, hence I suspect the reason for wanting a new one!

interesting

these can easily be painted black over the stainless, and will never rust out, so win-win , lol
