Quick and easy licence plate aerodynamic mod :D

This mod shouldn't take anyone more than 10 minutes to complete from start to finish.

Licence placement mod:

This is how it looked prior to mod, notice how it stuck out a little under the bumper, you could
see a bend in the metal becuase of the air pushing against it all the time...


This is with the plate/holder off, if I didn't censor my plate number, you can see the old screws and the little screw I made, I simply used the old screw to "drill" a hole in the bumper with the screwdriver, it wasnt hard to do at all.


This is the final result, the licence is flat against the bumper and no parts of it are sticking out anywhere.

blackjackel -

Welcome to EM! That's a clean mod. I gotta copy the "flush" style on that. I have no excuse.

^ Because weirdos can look up your info from your license plate. Some states it's easy, in others you gotta know a cop

^^^ Nice job. I'm one of the lucky ones that can remove the whole thing

If a wierdo wants to look up a license plate all he has to do is walk outside. That person that wants to try to get a little information about someone thru their plate can save a lot of time by looking at a car outside rather than searching the internet looking for someones plate.

Im not afraid to throw a 7 megapixel image of my license plate on the internet for the world to see.

What if said weirdo had a personal vendetta against YOU.. maybe you pissed him off.... maybe you said something in this forum... maybe you said something in a different forum but he looked up your user name on Google and found you here.... then he finds your plate and gets your address, and murders you while you sleep

Its an extreme example, but once you post your plate, you are no longer anonymous online and anyone and everyone can look you up and do what they want with you.

Not to worry, I have saved the picture of blackjackel's hand and have begun a nation-wide search for it's owner. It's only a matter of time! Bwahahahaha!
