G"Day All,
I just checked the spare surrounds that came with my vehicle and they are correct fit for the NSW plate,from dealership.
flat faced with front curved and rear flast, screw plates to these and then have holes lined up for RTA standard hole space,winning, even came with screws.
Regards

Don't use the surrounds that came with the car. Mount the Mustang American plates directly to the car. Dealer did mine. Then get a set of Altrex plate covers. Plates come from RTA

G"Day Fisste,
Now I know why the ones that come with it you don't use, they are to big , wrong curve at front and the plates hole spacings on nsw plates are different widths and these NSW Mustang plates come with absolutely no holes at all in them.
Im distraught, new mustang plates and cant just fit them straight up.
I don't know what to do.??
Even the back spacings will put a screw straight through the pony,WTF.??
Any ideas.?
Regards
Wiradjuri.

How about getting some hard plastic or other material and screwing it to your car and the pop rivet your plate to it?

G"Day All,
Ive been brain stormin all arvo and found that the supplied front and rear holders can fit with a bit of work and no need to drill the plates.
The front plastic holder lined up when I worked out it needed to be lower and I can attach the plate to it with some sort of adhesive and the rear one needed to have some holes drilled in it high as I could get them at the correct distance and it fits and I can still get to the boot button.
bunnings for some  longer screws and washers tomozz and then should be all good.
Fingers crossed.
Regards
Wiradjuri
