    I never quite understood tonneau covers. They seem to lie flat and collect water. I've made this cover to fit over the screen and any water will flow straight off the back. It also keeps prying eyes off as it covers all the glass. Well pleased with it!

    That's a good idea , whats it look like from the front?
    As my Roadster is also on the same year of Registration , who did you get the number plates from. According to this article on page 11, cars made before 1979 and Historically Registered can apply to the DVLA to use them.

    Does anyone know what form to fill in, so early style number plates can be used?

    The cover fits the across the screen, just a loose fit over the wipers, but stops anyone looking in.
    The plates came with the car, but pretty sure you'll get some easily made on eBay.

    Having read and re-read various sites on this I can find no actual requirement to apply for using early plates

    other than the car has to be rated as a Vehicle of Historic interest.

    Apply for a vehicle tax exemption

    Apply at a Post Office that deals with vehicle tax.
    You need to take:

    • the log book (V5C) in your name
    • your vehicle tax reminder letter (V11), if you have one
    • an MOT certificate that’s valid when the tax starts, or evidence if your vehicle’s exempt from an MOT (V112)
    • an insurance certificate or cover note (only in Northern Ireland
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!
