Just looking for two number plates one 1958, the other 1959 - doesn't matter what state although southern U.S. of A is preferred. I've found a shedload on sleazebay but either no bugger will post to…Continue

i've used  9 volt  led lines   . 2 AA battery  packed  led lines  ,  lighted shoe laces  , and  little   flickering  candle  lights from the  dollar store  .  the lighted  tea-light  candles   work  with  the most  ease  and can be mounted  in the  back .    i  dont bother with  rechargeable batts .
