Is that photo for show, a trailer clamp won't fit will it?

After taking the pictures i noticed the wheel don't have locks so i need to correct that today.

 

In addition i want to sell the number plate B11 YLL can anyone recommend a valuation site? I've tried loads of sites but all they seem to do is offer me another plate whereas all i want is the value of mine.

Doubt if it will be worth much as it doesn't really say BILLY does it. Probably cost to transfer and get a new plate might not be worth it :(

What like a tag :D ..... Anyway i was going to start this post with "BUGGER" because the wheel clamp i bought doesn't fit :crying_anim02: Reason being the wheels are to wide and the body to low so now i have a clamp "never used" for sale.

Even if it wasn't bought online most places would refund as long as it's not been used.

William actually :lol: ...... I think i will move it on and replace it with anything that has TB or 360 in it.... Remember my Lotus that came with J4 TBO which i think was for turbo but since my name is Tony Bones it fitted just fine as a personal plate :D

Car looks good!

 

WRT the plate , a lot of places only offer you a sale price IF they have a buyer, they put it on their books and IF a buyer decides to buy it then you get the money but often the plate stays on a database for years and there is never any interest
