    He does have a plate but I've shopped it out. It's a small stick on one.

    You can put a stick on plate wherever you please, doesn't make it any less illegal :rolleyes:

    Sticky on front bumper would be fine, id prob push for a 400mm long rather than 520 standard though.

    Only on cars over a certain age I think. Can't remember when it was changed, late 90s maybe.

    If it's stuck along the front bumper it may be legal. It's also supposed to be flat and not facing downwards afaik.

    NY Moors, the road from/to Hutton-le-Hole? If so, quite often see interesting stuff when I'm up there, seems quite a popular road.

    Stick on plates are illegal, but unlikely to get you in trouble.
    There have been a few historic exceptions, like the E-Type.

    To clarify I mean plates made of vinyl, not acryllic or plastic plates which are stuck on with adhesive.
    Like that criminal @grudas' front plate on his S2K for example!

    From 1st September 3d number plates are banned unless its a historic vehicle. also it seems pre 1973 its legal to have them stuck on your bonnet.

    What are the vents for? When I had my 996, they were intakes for the turbo radiators iirc, but it would seem odd to have that setup for turbos now, then change it for that car, unless it's more air for the engine.

    I guess it's a big engine, as none turboed, and imo cooling is always an issue in a 911 just because there's the rest of the far in the way:p. I bet it sounds epic.
