    JUSTIN smiles and introduces himself. He’s in front of a black Audi. The PPQ logo, phone number 135 356 and PPQ.com.au appear in the top left corner. The video title appears in large white text. The title reads: Attaching Euro Plates.

  2. JUSTIN

    Bonjour, JUSTIN here from Personalised Plates Queensland, showing you the easiest way to attach your new Euro Plates.

  3. Video description

    JUSTIN is kneeling front of the grille of the black Audi, talking directly to camera and holding up a form. The black Audi still has its standard issue plates attached.

  4. JUSTIN

    So after you've handed in this Remove and Attach form to your nearest Department of Transport and Main Roads...

  5. Video description

    JUSTIN puts down the form and playfully throws a screwdriver in the air and catches it with his hand.

  6. JUSTIN

    Simply remove your old plates with one of these.

  7. Video description

    JUSTIN then turns to the car, unscrews the number plate and takes it off the car. JUSTIN puts the screwdriver on the ground. JUSTIN holds the new Euro Plate up to the car grille and uses a black marker to mark the positions where screws holes will be drilled in the number plate.

    Then, just hold your Euro Plate up against your plate recess and mark the vertical position and spacing of the existing holes on your bumper.

    Once you've done that, take your plate and place it on a workbench.

    Using a ruler, JUSTIN measures the distance from the top and side of the Euro Plate to the black marks made, on both the left- and right-hand sides of the plate.

  12. JUSTIN

    Measure the horizontal and vertical distance of your front markers and transpose them onto the back of your plate.

    The plate is lying face down on a wooden board. A drill is used to drill holes into the back of the plate.

  14. JUSTIN

    Now grab a drill and drill your holes. Make sure you don't apply excessive pressure and only use a sharp drill bit.
