Where do you mount the number plate?

P.S. I think your trailer must be worth more than my boat.

Getting everything legal is a bit of a chore, just takes a bit of careful planning and purchasing. The choice of "proper" ip68 stuff that is worth buying isn't great so I've spent hours making stuff work. I have a pair of tail lights, rubber stalks and licence plate lights that they have a bare face cheek calling waterproof, they would barely be splash proof.

Anyone considering doing this I promise you it will take 5x longer than you think and cost twice as much.

If I could turn the clock back I would have stuck led lights on a trailer board and called it good.

Went too far now so I'll plod on, when I get the poles back from galvanizing I'll post up some pics. I'm on v3 of the design now, spent quite a time mocking up.

New 4x4 is coming this weekend which is led trailer compatible so one job saved...although resistors would be cheaper :-)
