Question License plate brackets - $45.00

Hey everyone,

I'm just offering to build these if there is enough interest.

I have a bit of machining / metal working skills and have a design idea to make one of these that will fit into the tow hook, very similar to what's already sold out there. However I'm willing to make these for $45 if enough interest.

I will make a "prototype" first and can also send a google sketchup file with the drawing if anyone uses that program.

It will be made of steel with stainless hardware to prevent from rust. Let me know if interested.

Also I make L brackets for any of the photographers out there...

Yep just a straight bolt on. No holes. I should have some pics up in a week for people to see.

Hey Guys,

Sorry to disappoint, but just found out that the threading for the tow hook hole is not a standard size. So I won't be able to do this it looks like. Was hoping to hook everyone up with a good deal. I guess that's why they're on the pricey side....I'll let you know if I come up with something else.
