Hi there,

Proud new owner of a 1994 D1 300Tdi imported into the US from the UK late last year. It still has the original number plates on front and rear.

Any tips on how to attach the US plate? From what I can tell, the UK plate is either glued or riveted on. I'd need to remove that and get some sort of bracket to properly mount the US plate (so that it's lit at night).

Would this part be the same as the D2 bracket? I'm seeing that listed in a couple places, but nothing for the D1.

On a related note: I am new to Land Rovers in general; I have experience with BMW/MINI in the past. I have downloaded RAVE already but I'm wondering - is there some sort of site like https://www.realoem.com/ where I can search for parts and get the specific part numbers?
Edit: this site seems to have some useful links on it.
