Front number plate

The front number plate on a Caterham is always a problem. They are in a very vulnerable position and get battered by stones and other road debris. Also, you don't want to damage the nose cone if something hits the number plate. With this in mind I fitted the plate with 3 little blocks of Dual Lock, which is a plastic velcro-type fastener. This allows the plate to be removed, and in the event of something hitting the plate it will come loose without damaging the nosecone. I think this is a better solution than a long strip of VHB tape that is normally used.

I also cut down the number plate to the minimum legal size (10mm borders around the letters) which looks much better than a standard width plate given that I only have 5 characters. Now it fits nicely within the dimensions of the nose cone itself.
