Attaching Rally plates

Recommended Posts

What's the best way of attaching front rally plate to a 3A?

 

I tried electrician´s black tape on the apron but sooner or later it would fly off. In the end I used plastic ties and blocked part of the radiator grille. That was fine in November with temps around 20º, but fear that at the end of April it may cause overheating.

 

So, what is the best way without damaging the paintwork?

I used plastic cable ties to fix the plate in the position shown in the photograph here so the airflow through the radiator was not impeded.

Hi iain

 

So, you place two three on the apron and then tie the plate round them? is that it?

 

Thanks

 

Sorry! I got it:

 

But how do you take them off without scratching the paintwork?

Hi Mike

 

Looks reasonable. Did you do the same to the rear?

No damage to chrome bumper.

In last week's rally I taped the plates to the bodywork, front and back. It looks better, but the front kept flying off...

I'm going to order some, but I am not convinced that if I place them on the apron, above the shield (nearly flat) they will not come off as the wind will blow under them.

 

We'll see!

HI Camilo

 

check out these photos...i didn't use the suction cups....I hadn't seen them before, but others, more experienced than me thought them perfect.

Thank you Iain

 

Suction cups, number plate double-sided tape, string, plastic ties,,,

 

I am going to get the lot and I am sure the Rally plates will stay in place throughout.

 

Thank you all
