Ok so I am thinking about getting a custom plate.. got a ripper name in mind.. cant tell sorry :)

But heres the questin I want to ask,

If I get them, should i get both plates 'Standard' size, or Back 'Standard', and front 'Slimline'

Slimline is 372mm x 100mm

Standard is 372mm x 134mm

Probably slimine means u need to drill new holes but it looks heaps better :)

i like the slimline ones but i guess everyone is different.

my front standard plate was held on by the top two screws only so i could get away with the slim ones and not leave two ugly holes and on the back i have a numberplate surround, standard size with a sticker along the bottom to fill the gap.

Yeah my both plates are held up by 4 screws.. and hey look nice and rusty.. sure the holes would look beautiful lol...

I like he slmiline though.. I dont know If I could be bothered patching the holes up but.. what would U do to clean it up?

I think the slimline looks good if it is centred in the allocated space.. so that would mean new holes..

My Plates are slimline... I hate standard plates... thats my opinion... centred the front and left the rear at the original screws...

I have 4 holes in the front that i never bothered filling up... unless your looking you never notice them...

These are my old plates... I have personalised ones now... But still the same style...
