Does look odd with nothing in the screen,

The one for my 635 is brown. However i have decided i may use an alternative of a piece of paper with 'tax in post' scrawled on it. Years ago i actually used that because it was. I like having a clear screen, now to loose the number plates.... We should just use scannable data tags or something. Most cars as part of their design, incorporate a space for a plate, they look a lot different without it. Remember the old 'weld over the fiesta tailgate recess' mod?
" tax in post " Del Boy style
Googled the fiesta mod, the pictures i got i couldnt tell if the plate was meant to be on the tailgate or the bumper..
How about losing the filler cap as well Rude? Years ago the old man had a Zodiac where the cap was behind the rear plate that folded down on hinges
It was all about the curves. The Si bumper and a welded bootlid. The number plate got stuck in the window. For those who couldn't weld, body filler was the choice material, which cracked.... Most of the time. By the way @watty , the sword arrived today. In a way it was a bit disappointing because I thought it was my rubber rubiks cube that's taking ages to arrive. Still, its here safe now.
That's really cool. I like the idea of 'Tax In Post' - the Rallye's getting that tomorrow!
Was it really £100 to tax in 1990? That was a lot of money back then (and really still is).
