Thanks all. WAZ91, is there a time limit my reg can be off a car before I lose it b ing mine?. Don't trust the garage & don't want a few weeks to go by & when I chase it up , nothing has happened & my teh is not mine or expired somehow ?.
The plate is yours you could keep it on retention for as long as you like. I'd give it 4 weeks then chase the garage if they say they have sent it all off best give DVLA a buzz. I have number at work so if you need it at any point give a pm.
They are pretty good although i find the the stickiness on the drivers side goes after a while probs due to heat of me being near it lol.
With Splicing I just found the wire i wanted and carefully peeled off the outer part with a stanley blade (Just the Blade) and wrapped another wire around this, taped up with electrical tape and the to the pad.
