Number plates
« on: September 29, 2017, 12:18:27 PM »
I'm about to change the Carltons No. plates due to a crack in the current one.

Any ideas?

If you buy from the local car parts shop they cant sell you plates with the font that was used in the early 90s, the current font is bit narrower.

I think the 90s one is called Charles Wright and the current one Charles Wright Narrow.

If you care about that and want them to look original as I did on my Carltons the only way is to buy them online and they will sell you what have to be called show plates but can be exactly what the car would have had from new.

Its a bit silly that you cant legitimately buy the font of the day for road use but once fitted nobody can tell they werent made back in the day and plates made back then are perfectly legal to use.
