"Custom License Plate Bracket"

Fabricated a license plate bracket becasue i didnt wanna remove the tow hook. and on top of that the other license brackets i saw the license plate would stick out a little to far for my taste. its held up by 3m tape and a few self tapping screws. Its made out of Aluminum so its light weight, and i painted it with Wrinkle Black paint.

Thinking about making more if anyone is interested just send me a PM.

Nice fab job.

Though I've never understood why having the plate off to the side is better than having it dead center.....

Usually it's so they can attach it to the tow hook. Great job on the bracket

Simple...some people don't like to drill holes into there front bumper. Another reason, blocks a bit of air going into the intercooler.

Yup what he says ^^^^

If I had euro plates I would have no problem putting the plate in the middle because they don't block anything but even then I would just use 3m tape. No holes for me. Lol that you can see.

I figured as much.

I can't believe that slight bit of obstruction would have that detrimental an effect on the intercooler.
