    Hello All,

    Its been almost 1 Year since i had done any additions/mods to the car. Hence was thinking of adding more abarth on the car, so based on the Abarth 500 racing car, i liked the way ABARTH is written/painted on the front grill. Since our GP dont have that big/wide grills, so cant do.
    Hence came up with this simple photoshop idea.
    What ya think?

    Also kindly let me know based on the image:

    1. Can the number plate be fitted at that place? If so, how?
    2. Would number plate on the grill would attract the traffic cops? Am i violating any rule?
    3. Would cause any issues to the radiator or to any other parts? => Hypothetical guess ;)
    4. Anything else?

    Thank you :)

    P.S: Yes remap is in the pipeline, i need to learn alot about this car and fine tune my driving skills to know my needs for the maps.

    @zenwalker, point 3, having the number plate in the place where the air dam is might affect the air intake. Probably technical guys can shed more light into it.

    Dont block that area. The intercooler is fixed there. Unnecessary complications might arise. It will be like covering the nasal passage.:)

    Thanks guys,
    Even I was very worried about effecting radiator or relevant parts.
    Any other ideas where else I can put the plate to achieve this snickering.?

    Thanks

    Don't ever block the intercooler like that... check @Naughty 's thread , he wrote the number on the side of the bumper neatly..
    or you can change the grille to mesh grille and you can easily write Abarth there like in the pic while keeping number plate at the same place

    How about a smaller number plate than I have now. Something similar or much smaller than the plates on front of swifts. That should not block much of air in flow to intercooler, right?

    Since the height of Lowe grill is much smaller than the abarth you have shown so it won't be possible to have such written or rather not much visible hence i thought of this way.

    Btw could you please point me to his thread you mentioned?
    Thanks

    I do not think it is legal to have the registration number like this. Sure to attract a lot of cops.
