The drag caused by that plate probably lowers the top speed of the Tomos by 1km/h.
In that case I wonder if removing the indicators and using hand signals would reduce the overall drag on a long journey or increase it. :think:

Skip the hand signals all together. Lay on seat naked with all hair shaved, then you can use foot to signal. I bet it goes 2 mph faster and gets 1 mpg more.

Brexit makes ?500 cars cheaper by the minute... And I'm really interested in teaming up with someone to get a banger from Edinburgh. A good option is getting a W124, as my gf's brothers have a CE and a TE and they could use a parts car, preferably a 300E-engined one. Another option is a really cheap Lexus, Jaguar, anything with presence, leather and MOT til end of August.
