Hello,

Anyone know how to put the magnet L at the tail of a VW up? It is not made by metal and it couldn't hold the L sign. Pls advise, tks.

Re: L sign on VW up

I used to attach it right next to the trunk door, at the end of the metal car body close to the indicators. This way the L is not squarely facing to the backward, but still visible. I don't know if this is acceptable by law. The other day I saw an Up on the way with the L high on the back top of the car, which has an even worse visibility.

Re: L sign on VW up

the car actually gives the impression of a learner. put a very visible Mobility sticker on it and everyone will give you way.

Maybe use a magnet from the inside?

The Neodym magnets are awesome, BTW ;-)

Re: L sign on VW up

Seriously: if your car does not have a metal panel on the back to stuck a magnetic sign on... buy one with a suction cup instead. They are cheaper than the magnetic ones anyway...

Migros Do-it (as well as all of the others such as Coop, Jumbo etc.) have them. You stick them on the inside of the back window.
