It makes you wonder what sort of people are out there, a freand of mine unsheeted his engine one morning at the 1000 engine rally, he went back to his caravan to get somthing only to return to find his brass oilers had been taken!

p.s, it may shock some purists, but wouldnt it be a good idea to fix things like brass plates on at the back with some sort of resin?

Default name plate

Awful to see the stolen plate, do you know how to get a replacement? it occurs to me, that there is a method of casting known as lost wax, where you could get a copy from the sister badge, leaving the last digit blank, to re-engrave the number? but for all I know there may be makers of brass plates who could do it cheaper? just a thought!
