Number Plate Light

One of the jobs over Winter was to route the 2 core wire for the num­ber plate light through the double skin of the GRP boot for the num­ber plate light from the hinge mount­ing point.

GD actu­ally leave a pre-installed a wire in between the boot lid skins at the point of man­u­fac­ture how­ever I was unable to estab­lish any con­tinu­ity when test­ing with a mul­ti­meter which left me with little option oth­er than to remove and replace.    This involved lots of meas­ur­ing pri­or to drilling not­ably as my body is already painted and I was keen to ensure that there was min­im­al dam­age and I was also para­noid about appear­ing on the wrong side with my drill !

Drilling 15 mm holes and a sig­ni­fic­ant amount of cuss­ing and firk­ing (tech­nic­al term) with a scriber, I even­tu­ally man­aged to route the cable through and even­tu­ally fish­ing the wire out.

I have seen numer­ous good examples of brack­ets to hold the actu­al num­ber plate itself on oth­er blogs which I will fab­ric­ate later.
