Hi Mike_k, love your work on these. Is there any chance you'll be doing some plates for the No.5 trailers eg the 'Made by Ordnance Maribyrnong' rectangular plate etc

Sure Daryl, that should not be a problem.

We just need a readable one to work from.

I will be at Corowa this year, if yours is readable we can go from there.

That's good. Mine's indecipherable now so I'll see if I can get a photo of one for you

I have had data plates reproduced for many years. I still have some left if anyone is interested. Message me for details.

They look great Firey,

As someone who has just gone through this, I really appreciate the amount of work you put into them.

Did you produce these for a particular project?

These were done as people required them and for my projects.
I still have plenty of C - G plates left and a few different ones. I had 50 trailer plates made and they went like hot cakes.........

BTW mike_k, do you need a scaled example of the plate to reproduce it (sorry mick that had 3 syllables  ;)) or is the photo here of firey's okay?

Daryl,

A good photo will do, and the exact dimensions.
Most of the ones we made up were measured up from an original.
The hole spacing is critical, so that it fits!

Aye, I'll get 'em for you.

Just a thought, is it possible to get the domed head rivets to affix the plate?

 8) My "Four Wheel Drive Instructions" placard arrived today, unbent. Thank you a ton. It looks so close to the original, I'm amazed.
