    Hi guys & girls.

    I may have this in the wrong area, but I couldnt work out where to put it. I hope (and get the feeling) this may be a short thread anyway...

    As the title says, How would I secure it to the car? Preferably without screws.

    Cheers

    If you dont want to use screws then obviously the only other option is double sided automotive / numberplate tape. Can be purchaed in Halfords or any any car accessory shop or online.

    You need some sky hooks, Halfords sell them.

    The plate surround will require screws, then you attach the plate to the frame. Most dont require anything else, the non-locking ones however will require double sided sicky pads available from all car shops, dealers etc.

    Moving to Bodywork section

    if you buy the pads just make sure you get the 1mm ones and not the 3mm
