      Stupid question from me. I see UK cars with plates (often the front) right on the body. How are they attached? Doesn't it harm the paint? Sure doesn't look too good, IMHO.

        Typically with screws into fixing points. Some are applied stickers/vinyl.
        in France they have to be attached with rivets not screws.

          On this pic you can see the two screw holes in white where the plate attaches.

            OK but I've seen plates on the bonnet right on the paint.

              Reminds me of something I posted a while back on the "Number plate of the day" thread - https://www.newturfers.com/vb/forum/...ate-of-the-day



              [Edit - "a while back" is nearly 3 years!! Time flies...]

              Yes, those are self-adhesive vinyl plates which are not road-legal - although I think there may be some dispensation when on classic cars:

                Yeah...oddly what prompted my query was seeing such a plate on an E type on "Wheeler Dealers." I'm not much of a car guy but I've always had a weakness for this car.

                    Lurvely cars; I would prefer a V-12, coupe (two-seater, only,) please. The E's were notorious rust-buckets here, and were oil-burners from the jump.

                    I looked a drop-top over on a used car lot back in the day. It looked like shrinking top fabric had cracked the wind screen. Bought a Corvette, instead: Merica!!

                    Way back in the day, a young blonde (don't get too excited Chris, it was a female,) slid up to the curb with the top down, and a smile. I passed; she was a little too zaftig for me (at the time.) 😎 Probably a big mistake; she may have let me drive. 😢

                      Like a lot of young lads of that era it was always my dream car as well as the Mercedes SL pagoda, a friend who was a Jaguar nut bought one a few years ago as a semi restoration project, it was the first time I had been really close up to one and after spending a bit of time with it I was very disappointed, they should be left in the past where they belong.

                        Their rear axle assemblies live on in our hot rods. The are very attractive, but in short supply. 😟
