Looking for number plates and I liked the ones with the border but Since I measured the gap it would appear my bumpers are early BD style with the 440mm 17 1/4" gap so that might be out, did fit em in into 57 so OK I suppose

Good work - I have a Dove Blue 59, so when I eventually come to do a full respray, I know what it will sort of look like.. I also think the badge should be dove blue and all pop outs blue as well.. Chrome are fine, but I prefer them matching the body.

Well me speedo needle has arrived from LA as the original was the the same consistency as a mummies wrappings and the end snapped off, as it is not much bigger than a match stick I was surprised it came rattling around in a box that the speedo could fit in ........twice!!download/file.php?mode=view&id=24787htt ... w&id=24786
