Hi all, just got a more suitable reg plate for my rex but now I'm wondering if a jdm style square plate would look better on the rear. Anyone done this as can't find much in the way of pics. Cheers.

JDM with the carbon plate surrounds look awesome IMHO :) TheManc has one I think?
Current: FrankenRex 2, leaner and meaner. '60 plate, eibach lowering spings, Maserati 6 pots, braided brake lines

Thanks Dan,
Yeah just looked at TheManc's. Looks sweet. Never thought about a surround.
Alas they don't seem to make one for the R3 and I don't think it would work with the parking sensors.
I think I'll try a square plate tho 👍

Someone else would need to confirm, but I am 99% certain that the plate opening is the same on both bumpers...

EDIT: You can get a drill which is the perfect size for the parking sensors so you could easily pop them out of the bumper and relocate them :)

Thankyou! Yes I love it, but still a long way to go yet! Got plenty of parts I want on it and definitely need it lowering! Not sure what springs to go for yet though!
