    Default Private plate spacing.

    I've just purchased a private plate for me vecci



    I know that legally it should have spacing of 11mm and 33mm between groups... buttt...

    What are the chances of getting slapped with a fine if i reduced the space between the groups a few mm to say 25mm?



    The plate is MI C** I’d obviously like rid of the space completely but I don’t want it to look Illegal as well as being illegal lol



    Opinions?

    All it takes is for a particular force to have a crackdown mate and your nicked if they see it.

    Have a chat with 'Big Phil', as he's recently had a run in.

    These people will get you on the right track.
    http://www.gtgrafix.com/

    but they have limited their range recently - they did have cut out numberplates that had just the minimum spacing around each letter/number

    and

    Not legally mate. There's one standard and we are supposed to stick to it.

    I would like to think that if you don't go too far most Patrols will let it go.
