T289R Flash Jan edition

Post by Dave Woodward » Wed Dec 30, 2020 11:18 am

Just read the Jan edition of flash and saw for the first time that any cars with a date of manufacture post Jan 1980 are going to have to go to black and yellow plates.

I wasn’t aware of this!

I would guess the rozzers would have to be having a very dull day to pull you over for that. I always keep my “legal” plates in the boot just in case I forget to swap over my black and white “show” plates.....😜

I guess it will depend on what the V5 states.
Not easy to swap the adhesive version of the front plate.

Simon, I don’t think magnets work on fibreglass!
