Hi, we have a car with plastic bumpers, so the Magnetic L plate won't stick. There is no place to tie an L plate either. Does anyone know where we can get some stick on plates that won't damage the car?

Thanks

Can't you just put the magnetic one on the actual car rather than the bumper? I think all bumpers are plastic nowadays aren't they?

The back of the car is either glass or plastic - so far it has been tucked under the windscreen wiper.

We put the front one on the lower part of the bonnet. What about using some of the tape you use for painting?

Tie them to the front grill?

You're going to say it doesn't have a front grill now, aren't you? :lol: :lol:

The front is fine; the back is the problem. I will try the above mentioned site now. Thanks

If not we will have to tape them onto the glass below the window. I've looked at a couple of small cars and they all seem to have the same problem.

the magnetic ones have a habit of flying off on busy roads!

Use sticky ones, but make surs you have a bottle of goo gone, which is great to have in the house anyway.

or busy dual carriageways :lol:

You need to make sure they are fitted flush so the air cannot lift them; bonnets are that shape for a reason.
