oem number plates?

Hey guys, Winter has had a grip on Michigan for awhile now and I am taking advantage of the down time and doing some work to the Rc.

I have a front fender, rear hugger and a rear cowl and cowl cover coming from Tyga.
Now here is my problem..... My bike is a 00 and has the silver tail with black # plates... since my new tail from Tyga is all carbon I would like to put the silver # plates on from an 03 but I can't seem to find them.
I can find the stickers that go on the cowl cover but not the larger tail stickers.

I had also relocated my battery to the front lower of the bike. That went well...
Also removed the right headlight and put on a motion pro overflow.
Who makes a headlight filler these days? I need one for the right. I have only found Mrgrn. Not sure if I want to go there..
I had also put a HID kit on the left headlight. Pretty bright!

No Novels!

Fricken GOLD battery!

Go to a sticker/graphics shop, with your OEM tail cowl, I am sure they can do some thing for you.

Oh and also I have my wheels at powder coating right now.. Golden it is... actually a bronze color...new bt016 pros sitting here waiting for the wheels..
I will have to say the original paint came off real hard. I had to spend a lot of time getting those wheels spotless..

I did think about that.... I just have a crush on OEM.. Even if its OEM stickers on my non OEM carbon tail.

Good luck matching the silver.....its damn difficult to get an exact match.

The number plates are painted on. Honda used to keep shit real.
