Well the girlfriend keeps having her l plates snap off whilst riding. I've tried cable ties, rubber coated garden wire even the garbage bag ones and the damn plates keep snapping. I've got an idea and want to know if anyone has tried something similar to know if it may work. Belows my idea. Items - 2 thin aluminium bars, washers, screws and nylon nuts. and magnetic floppy L plate (for now) change to P plate when she gets it. screw then washer into bottom hole of number plates then on the back have another washer then one of the aluminium bars followed by the other with the L/P plate wedged in between the 2 then another washer and a nut with the nylon/plastic material in them. once this is done tight then it whould be fairly difficult to remove. It will also be flexible enough so that at speed it won't snap due to being the magnetic type L/P plates you can get at petrol stations. Please pass any comments as to whether you think this may or may not work?
