Default License plates (saloon, rear)

Looking for a supplier of decent rear plates.

Mine are a cheaper type which has warped and peeled in the sun, even though i think they look great apart from that.

I'd be looking for someone who can do a 'proper' plate with the thick transparent epoxy over it (thus not having the issue).

I would like it somewhat customiseable as i'd like these to match.

Anyone have any connections/ideas?

Iím looking for such a supplier too. Unfortunately mine sits in the driveway with the rear facing the afternoon sun and after 2 years the film on the rear plate has now expanded and buckled.

Might be better to post this in the general section too.

Depends if they've got a printed film on top or the clear resin/epoxy.

I think the printed film warps without the resin or epoxy to hold it down.

The plate I have comes from Hardridden and the film buckled in the summer sun.

Demon plates and hardridden are two different companies, hardridden is still going on t'web bit anything other than standard 520x111 will be laminated onto abs.

I am just tweaking the shape of the rear plate to get a perfect fit then will be supplying them.
