Good question - 1 piece. Jeff spent quite a bit of time working out how to do it in 1 piece. Of course that meant material cost was a bit higher to get a sheet large enough.

She's probably right. I have a degree in physics so I got it right away :)

I saw that you can order one online without having a car and after a few tries got one I kinda like that's not taken. How does it get associated with the car and VIN? Does the dealer do that instead of sending in the normal application for the plates?

Thanks a bunch for the help!

Yeah, very good question. I tried to have the plate associated with the car right from the dealer because I had it in my possession before I took delivery - they insisted that it is not possible, I still believe it is, ask your dealer, they may be more enthusiastic about the idea.

I had to wait until our metal plates were delivered in the mail and take them and the personalized plates to the DMV to have the personalized ones associated.

My degree is in physics also, guess only physics majors will get it and that is okay with me.

I got it right away, and I have no physics degree. However, my electrical engineering degrees might have helped a bit. ;)

Yeah, it's simple enough that even the engineers can understand it ;)

Maybe I could get one of Maxwell's equations or the Lorentz force law on there! Unfortunately MAXWELL is taken.

My brother, Physics PhD and Electrical Engineering professor at UU, has this:

Maybe a thread with EV related plates....

Genius - if you want to start the new thread, fire away, it is your idea, otherwise I can.

Your thread Darren, sorry for hijacking it. ;) Go for it.

I don't often comment but the blue accent detail you've done does look good. In fact I just googled how to get some here in the uk.
Might take a while for me to get around to it though.

Cheers
Mark
