military plate supplier?
« on: June 15, 2014, 06:44:21 PM »
Hi All,

Has any one used the attatched to get a set of plates for their series army land rover?

I was thinking of using for my 2A and trailer, any thoughts?

Hi,

unfortunately they are not the correct size

"The size of your number plate

We have the following size plates available:

    Small - 10 x 28cm (3.9 x 11.0)
    Large - 10 x 40cm (3.9 x 15.7)"

a proper number plate is 14 1/2"  x 5 1/4" or 370mm x 130mm

try http://www.plateproviders.com.au/

plenty of us have bought them from here and they are good

regards
Scott

Just had a look at the unrealplates.com website.  They look great,  how did you indicate a diamond as the separator ?

Got a set today from "Sign my name" on Facebook. Happy with the result. Only took a week from ordering the plates to receiving them.

Gedday

either Plate Providers (Vic) or Unreal Plates (QLD). Plate Providers are closing down soon however due to Govt regs surrounding replica plates that has made their business unviable.

I just got two sets, one from Unrealplates the other from signmyname on facebook


pros and cons for both

Unrealplates - dearer $76 for two plus delivery $92 total from memory, slower delivery (6 weeks over Xmas break), AMF is vinyl sticker and too large wrong font, diamond is sticker but numbers are good and embossed in

Signmyname - cheap $48 for two delivered, very quick 1 week, but numbers not embossed and all vinyl stickers

My 2 cents worth, I think the top one looks better.
