Front LICENSE PLATE pics.

recently a member posted up this license plate bracket.
went to the local car shop and found the bracket.
picked it up.

now it's painted black - because chrome is no bueno.
instead of mount/n the bracket to the mesh, i used 3
self tap'n screw under the open mouth area.
holds on like a champ , i'm going pad/rubber stopper behind the plate
so it doesnt' f up the paint/clear bra.

and the cool part is when i don't want to run the plate/
you can remove the two bolts on the bracket leaving just the small
upper bracket which u wont see.

That's about a good as a front plate can look!
Definitely the cleanest way to do it, imo.

Hey Frank,


Looks good. Now the real question is did you get a front plate ticket?
