    My rear Number Plate has fallen off my Car. I went to Halfords to get some more sticky velcro pads to stick it back on. Because it was too wet it wouldn't stick - and it's still pissing with rain now :rolleyes:

    How else can i attach my number plate ? It's illegal to drive atm and u NEED to go shopping tomorrow !

    HELP please

    as a temporary measure display it in the back window, then, when it is not raining heavily you can fix it properly

    as long as it is displayed to the rear of the vehicle and can clearly be read, you will be ok... google 'display rear number plate!' - or words to that effect.

    Double sided tape, the proper automotive type, better yet two self tapper screws

    BTW, legally, a number plate must have illumination (i.e. a lamp) so a back window could result in a ticket of a vigilant cop.....
