Just a word of caution to those who post pictures of their cars but with the number plate swirled out.

You've obviously wanted to obscure your number plate but be aware that the same swirl technique you've used to obscure it can be reversed to reveal the number plate.

It is better to use something like, worse-case, Microsoft Paint (comes with all versions of Windows) and either zoom right in and just use a free hand brush or draw a filled rectangle.

Most later versions of it have a 'dropper' where you can select another part of the white or yellow on the plate, and use that to get an exact match before you do either.

Trouble is, you aren't allowed to swirl the numbers on your real car...

SO ANYONE PASSING CAN SEE IT!!!!!!

The only answer is burn your plates, and pretend to be the queen.

My god, your right. All this time people have blanked their plates on the Internet - it's all been a waste of time.

The rear is done on the same way.

Below are some picture of members' cars who successfully blanked their plates:

I did a similar thing with one of my old Escorts.

Very safe to use on a motorway now...
