* Number Plate Bracket Plans

Posted on September 9th, 2016 by ploughmyfield. Filed under MAKE.


This article is probably the most requested email I get. How can I get hold of the plans for a wing mounted number plate bracket?

I’ve been reluctant until now to post the plans as I thought I might have a go at making them again. I have to little time and other projects I’d rather be doing, so I thought it was about time to post the information.

The design consists of two pieces.

The first is simply a flat plate about A4 size. originally this would have had the number plate painted onto it (white letters on a black background)


The second shape is more complex and requires accurate folding. One of the resons for supplying the information for this in a flat form is that it can be folded either way offering a right handed (for UK road) and a left hand (for Europe) below you see the UK bracket folds accordingly.


DXF files to download

Download the files as DXF for cutting on a laser of Plasma machine: download the DXF files here

It is also my intension to produce a PDF drawing of the basic dimensions for people to print out and cut round.

PDF files to download

Download the files as PDF documents. please be aware the paper size is A2 and A3. if you have an A4 printer print sections out at full size 1:1 and then stick them together to produce a full size sheet to draw round. Happy cutting and sticking.

    Hi mate
    Fantastic page. Just a quick comment on the mk3 pickup hitch. It was designed for the FE35. The reason the mounting brackets are shorter is to clear the bump in the bottom of the FE transmission. The earlier (mk1 and 2) hitches won’t fit on a FE35
