Excellent progress there Space and I must admit I like the plate :D

for anyone that has ever made or replaced any kind of metal brake line or fuel line, there is a new(new in the last couple years) type of line that is made out of 90% copper and 10% nickle. super easy to work with and bend and should never rust or rot. here, 50' of 3/16" brake line is $82 my cost and the 25' of 5/16" i got for the transmission lines was $54. expensive but well worth it to me :D

That looks solid enough! ...

Question?? What's it cost for you to have custom plates and is it possible to get them to keep for ever IE no yearly payments on them.

That's great compared to this stupid country..... for custom plates like that here its a $450 - $600 a year to keep the plates and use them as well as paying an average $600 - 2k per year for the sticker depending on what size vehicle one is driving. .... I think I will have to save up and gets me a set of Gnome plates ;) :D
