  10. Wrong.... Mark4 plates were made by powerlite !! they were 84 till 90 i think..The plates were My venture with pops...steve rink(powerlite) i will post ad later i still have... Hope this helps Mark Rink Sorry about that, but that's what I was led to believe. The plates seem to be constructed in a similar fashion as Zeronine, so It seemed plausible to me. If you don't mind Mark, how were the plates manufactured? Stamped? Molded? That kind of stuff fascinates me. yea they were injection molded... the visors dont look orig... stickers i think were down toward botttom of the visor if i remember right?We paid a few Gs for the mold then just ordered 500 at a time then stickers,velcro etc.... sealed in bag and shipped...Man i miss those days... Mark Rink
