Imagine Being Me? Hmmm, don't like the colors with the black car and that just doesn't rub me right. I like funny ones the best though personally.

I just ordered a simple plate: 042. To fans of Douglas Adams it means something, to every one else it's just a short number. Which goes with my old school theme of bronze with dark sepang interior.

I think I'll use a thread taped at either side of the deck lid. Looks like the thread should be even with the top edge of the white portion of the tail lights.

What gets the glue off? And what glue does one use to reattach?

measure up from the bottom edge of the trunk lid.
That's what your eye references when you look at it.

I've used painters tape to do this.
Place it just below the location to use as a guide.

Well the old plate (Z4 MC) is now gone and the new plate is installed: 1 of 148

The cost to change plates as $10.00

Been thinking about MMMAZED. If you see this plate, would you read it as Amazed or I'm A Zed?

Very nice. How did you get them to put in a half space between the M and C even when you're maxed out on 7 characters?
