Went down to the DVLA office, waited half hour, did the paperwork, phoned the insurance and BOOM! plates on!

Very happy with them!

Looking good, still got my carbon ones to go on yet.
Haven't had a warm enough day so far.
Probably wait until spring, wouldn't want them peeling off on me.

@Stoney871 I was lucky enough to have my Scene Dock at work to drive into to do the work... And a heatgun lol!

So first clean the badges! i also used isopropanol, then wiped with a microfibre towel, just incase any residue was left.

Then warm the badge up so its warm to touch, then warm the gel badge on the sheet until its floppy, then peel off and stick... they go on great.

I then used the heatgun again to warm, and applied as much pressure as i could (Almost too much on the front one, think ive broken it lol) then let it cool naturally before driving out into the -1 temp outside!!

I had one problem with air bubbles under the rear badge, but this was solved with the heatgun and pushing the bubbles out to the edges. One edge then refused to stick down... so again, the heatgun came out!! Needless to say, its stuck down now!

The next morning the whole car was covered in frost, and nothing appears to have peeled or come off.. Even the steering wheel one that i peeled off and reapplied has stuck on ok again! This is the only one i didnt heatgun...

Little update, Nothing major... Finally got the mix sorted on my snowfoam.. and the trick of adding a little shampoo, certainly made it able to be left to dwell longer!!

Cheers for the comments guys...

I've just ordered a STC Ford "mUSic-Box" as they call them (See HERE!... It will allow me to put all my MP3's in Folders on a USB stick, and play them by selecting the AUX button.

Its a retrofit solution, however as yet, it doesnt support iPhones or iPod touch (it doesnt mention Nano's tho... maybe these will work? ill do my research once ive installed it)

There was no idea of availability when i ordered it, so i may have to wait a while... But I'll keep you all updated!
