    Vintage Plates

    Hi all

    Whilst my '69 Mach 1 is being repaired I thought I'd treat her to some vintage plates (i.e. silver on black pressed aluminium). Anybody got any recommendations of where to source these from? There are places on the internet, but some look better than others.

    Thanks

          Justin - power steering pump was xxxxing transmission fluid everywhere as it was completely worn inside plus valve leaking. It was wired wrongly which meant it was losing voltage somewhere and wouldn't start, despite my attempts to wire the alternator straight to the battery. the rear suspension was shot (no compliance) and there was corrosion under fuel tank. engine mounts and front suspension needed attention and the brakes (oh the brakes) - rear flexi brake hose perished and cracked, and radiator approx 3/4 blocked.

          i decided to get brakes upgraded anyway as it was pretty scary when it wouldn't stop.

          all in all bit of a pain but will be great when finished.

              It's better if you don't put transmission fluid in them

                    I've got black perspex plates as well. They may not corrode, but the top surface can start to separate, making them look tatty. That's what's happening to mine, and I'll be getting some proper metal ones soon.

                        Tippers are excellent with a huge range (they are on the web http://www.tippersvintageplates.co.uk/) - father in-law has got highly polished pressed aluminium that have been lacquered. 7 years on and they are still great and he does nearly 10K pa in his MGA. Not the cheapest, but they are very good quality.

                        You'll need to photocopy your V5 and a utility bill though. Not many places make plates without proof of ownership and age these days...

                          Got mine at Framptons in Waterlooville (near Portsmouth)

                          Really friendly 24 hour service and great quality.

                          ETA: Just looked at their website and they've got a new gallery page which features a good few mustangs (most of which will be familiar to all on here) and a few famous faces. I'm going to have to send them a pic of Daisy on set. :D
