Christmas lights

My temporary phone is a tad old,  so excuse the photo quality but here is the VIN plate I did last night:


The electrical connectors arrived for the rear lights so a quick session to finish them off.  I've put loom tape round the wires,  then a rubber sheath and then the armour you can see in the picture below. Possibly overkill but I can imagine this is a very harsh environment for a cable. I also P-clipped it to one of the bolts:


Result looks pretty good (arches just resting on the tyres so will be higher) :

  1. Hi Neil,
    Tip on the VIN / ID plate - stamp either end of the texts with a dot or similar to show/prove its not possible to alter/add to etc.

  2. Yes, I saw you did that but I'm confused - the IVA manual says you can't have punctuation marks and doesn't mention needing the end dots. I thought maybe the rules had changed sinced you passed?

  4. You are correct - I can't find it in the IVA manual either,
    I don't remember where it came from - might have been a conv. with my testing station when I had to self build the plate, but don't recall exactly now.
    All the best.
