This is the best i could do. Next best thing to try is to actually put them there and then see. That should give a better picture.
Also, there is no room on the front bumper to put these plates

These plates would look wierd on your car, if your car is spotted with these, it will surly find its way into the W&W thread. Sorry for being blunt, i hope you got the message.

Amitoj,
If they look just as big, I would recommend you don't put it on the bumpers.
Instead you could slot them inside your rear glass, just above the rear seats.

However, if they are a tad smaller, you can go ahead and stick as per the image; red to the left and blue to the right.

Edit - I am not sure if the two way tape would hold those metal plates. Drilling would be mandatory.

Hehe. Thanks for the honesty. Had not thought of it that way before.

I dont think i got the scale right there. I'll put up an actual image later today.
But if drilling holes is required, then i can just forget about the whole thing.

Hey how big are these? as in dimentions? it'll look too cluttered up if you put both at the back. Id say put just the red one in the left/righ hand corner.. But again, if the plates is too big, it'll look out of place..

The best thing about 2 side tape is that you can use a small bit and stick it to the car to see how the plates look! so get your self some tape and show us!

Cheers!

+1 to it. That photoshopped version looks atrocious (to my eyes at least).

Keep them.. They will look great as a wall hanging next to your movie DVD/VCD/etc. collection.

In India no one will make out what they mean anyways. But folks on TBHP will know who is driving that car.

Anyway, I'll make one final attempt with the real plates, put the snap up here and then check with you guys again.

Well, those who get it, good for them, those who dont, it wasnt meant to be for them

But yeah, if nothing else works, then "up against the wall" it will be for these plates.

You could put it up in your room, just as I did with my newest license plates. Even though mine are the official high security ones allowed in India

Help: Where do i put these license plates?-13032010191.jpg
